Open Day ambassadors

Open Day ambassadors

The University hosts up to four Open Days per calendar year. At every Open Day, we recruit several students to work with us and talk to prospective students and their families about life in Grizedale and Lancaster. These positions are paid by the College.

Bar staff

Grizedale bar recruits the majority of its staff from the Student population. Our bar is well known for its cocktails and mocktails, and requires more thorough training than the other bars on campus. Student staff members report to the Bar Manager. Job adverts are usually posted via the University ERS website. For more information – you can ask behind the bar!
