Join our team!

Nightline is run by a team of brilliant staff and volunteers (if we do say so ourselves). As the charity continues to grow there are always opportunities to develop your skills as a volunteer or staff member at Nightline Association.

People are at the heart of Nightline Association and we want to see all our team engaged, inspired and developed throughout their time with us.

Why get involved with the Nightline Association?

Our team have the opportunity to play a hands-on role in both the operation and strategic development of a national charity. Do you fancy organising events? Working alongside other key names in the charity sector? Are you a whizz at writing new software? Do you love spreadsheets? Can you help pull together promotional campaigns? Get excited about cutting-edge research?

We’re always looking for passionate people looking to develop and apply their talents to supporting and improving student mental health.
