Outreach Opportunities


The School organises and contributes to a series of recruitment events, designed to raise the profile of our research agenda and increase the visibility of our degree programmes.  Examples of these events include:


We're always keen to recruit existing students to assist with the organisation of these events, particularly those who are willing to share their experience of Informatics with the public, applicants or even interested parents.  Admin staff will elicit applications prior to each event, although you are encouraged to contact us if you any of these events interest you.

Similar posts are also available through the University of Edinburgh, for example at the Edinburgh International Science Festival:


The University has agreed that payment for these activities shall normally be made at grade UE03, approximately £8.50 per hour.  Where we're recruiting for an event that offers an alternative rate of pay, we'll inform you at the recruitment stage.

Those already committed to a Teaching Support contract should claim for payment using the standard timesheet process, indicating the date and title of the event. Students who don't already have an employment contract with the School can be paid via the University's Casual Payment Voucher process, although should be aware that payment via this route can only be made three times per financial year. 

Part-time RAs can be paid, as detailed above. Full-time RAs are expected to contribute to these events as part of their contractual obligations and cannot be paid extra for this work.
