Chevalier College Telephone Campaign
29 June – 15 July 2017
Telephone Call Campaign Ambassador
Background and Caller Job Description
This is your chance to do something worthwhile, earn money AND have fun chatting to Alumni and parents!
From 29 June to 15 July, Chevalier College will hold its third annual telephone campaign and we are looking for Telephone Call Campaign Ambassadors. Is this you?
The purpose of this campaign is twofold: to raise funds for the Annual Appeal, and to enhance communication between Chevalier College and our Alumni. They enjoy hearing what’s happening at Chev – particularly from a past student or recent graduate’s perspective – and this is an important opportunity for you to help build closer links with our Alumni community.
All Alumni / Chev community members whom we intend to call will receive a letter in advance letting them know that a Student or graduate will be calling to ask them to make a donation to the Annual Appeal and to update them on Chevalier College’s news and forthcoming events. Everyone will be given the opportunity to opt-out if they do not wish to receive a phone call. We try to ensure all those who receive a phone call are expecting it and are happy to talk.
Dates, Hours and Rates of Pay
The dates of the telephone campaign are as follows, and callers will be required to work at least 16 hours per week (4 shifts a rate of $23 per hour). Those who show themselves to be trustworthy and effective may be able to work additional hours (with the pre-approval of Chevalier College, and your Campaign Manager).

Calling will commence at 5.15pm after a short talk by the Campaign Supervisor. During weekday calling shifts the last call will be dialled at 8pm however calls may run over if the conversation started earlier. Most callers will stop calling at 8.10pm.
Callers will call selected Alumni to:
- Update them on Chevalier College’s news and activities;
- Engage them in conversation about their time at Chevalier College and get their feedback on events, publications, etc;
- Ask them for a gift to the Annual Appeal.
Callers will need to keep an accurate (and legible!) record of all the calls they make.
Above all, callers need to enjoy speaking to people and have an outgoing, pleasant and friendly manner: the calling should be enjoyable for both callers and Alumni! Reliability and self-confidence are important, as are tact and discretion; all personal information must be treated as confidential beyond the calling room.
