Being a Student Volunteer on the Secretariat

The Secretariat consists of a number of student volunteers who help to run the CIEHF’s Ergonomics & Human Factors conference. The Secretariat is key to the success of the Conference. Being a student volunteer on the Secretariat is hard work, but most volunteers also find it a very enjoyable and rewarding experience.

In return for your help at the Conference, you will receive many benefits, including free attendance to the Conference (including accommodation), a free delegate pack (including proceedings), a free place at the Annual Dinner, and the opportunity to get to know delegates, as you will be highly visible. You will be expected to sort out your own travel arrangements to and from the venue.


As always, we are looking for enthusiastic, intelligent, reliable people to join the Secretariat for the Conference in Daventry. Competencies identified by previous Secretariat members include:

Good technical and IT skills
Good social and problem solving skills
A professional manner
The ability to think on your feet
The ability to cope well with stress
Effective team worker
Excellent communication skills
Good time keeping skills
A sense of humour

If this is you, please apply to become a member of the Secretariat. Volunteers must commit to being available for the whole Conference, and the day before.


To apply to become a student volunteer on the Secretariat, please complete this application form and email it by the 31st January to:

Becky Charles, Head of EHF2015 Secretariat:

Student volunteers will be chosen and notified in February. Historically, more students apply than can be accepted.
