If you’ve ever volunteered at an Open Day, Applicant Visit Day (AVD) or Clearing, you’ll probably have a sense of how important our recruitment cycle is here at Salford. Two people that know it inside out are Vicki Hennessy and Jen Birdsall from our Recruitment Support Team. Currently in the middle of a series of AVDs, the pair popped into the studio to give us the lowdown on everything recruitment!

Plus, as well as being open day pros, we also find out they’re quite the fans at open water swimming too. Hint: they may have even persuaded us to take a splash in the Quays.

If you’re interested in volunteering at any of the events Vicki and Jen mention please do get in touch with Jen at and she’ll keep you in the loop with opportunities. Whether you’re interested in manning the Clearing Hub phone lines or directing people around campus at an Open Day, there’s something for everyone.
