We are also looking at using students to partially staff our ceremonies for the first time this summer.
Initially we advertised for volunteers through our Student Union but didn’t get anywhere, so we have approached our Student Ambassadors (a group of students who our Marketing & Communications Department employ for Open Days, School visits and other outreach activities). The student ambassadors get paid approx £5.80 per hour for the work they currently do. We haven’t really considered job descriptions, person specs and application forms as this group of students already have formal contracts with the University so these may not be necessary in our case.
We would only employ the students for the very basic graduation roles ie. Staffing the information desk, meet and greet at the venue, handing out programmes, and we would only give them minimal training in the form of an information / task sheet and a site visit to our external venue. The more complex jobs would still be done by staff members.
I hope that this helps

Subject: Student staff @ grads
We are planning on recruiting a pool of students to staff our graduation ceremonies (previously Faculty staff have done this).
Would anyone be willing to share any job descriptions, person specs, application forms or recruitment tips with us?
What graduation roles do you recruit students for?
How do you recruit them?
What are your rates of pay?
How much training do you provide, and in what form?
Any suggestions or info welcome.
