Volunteer Insight Program (partnered with UEL)

This programme is in partnership with University of East London (UEL). If you’re in your second year, you could be one of the four students we take on each academic year to experience life in our laboratories.

Anna Domogala

What will you be doing?

You’ll spend a minimum of four hours at week in our laboratories in Hampstead, London assisting in day-to-day tasks, rotating through all sections of our lifesaving work.

How does this help Anthony Nolan’s lifesaving work?

You’ll be learning to become Anthony Nolan’s laboratory workers of the future, as well as supporting our staff with their work so they can focus on more knowledge-critical tasks.

What skills will you need?

  • Basic IT skills.
  • Reliability.
  • A thirst for knowledge.
  • Passion in our area of work.

What will you get out of it?

You’ll learn lots about working in a laboratory, including:

  • basic training in the use of certain software
  • health and safety training
  • techniques performed
  • the day-to-day life of working in a lab.

Plus, you’ll be seeing lifesaving in action, and will learn lots in the area of stem cell transplantation. You’ll have the opportunity to record your reflections and give feedback to aid in your professional development, and ensure you’re getting the best from us. You’ll hopefully have a very rewarding experience to enhance your university learning and gain experience for future job interviews!
