This reflective practice paper sets out to explore the application of the student as producer ethos. In particular, it engages with the student voice by considering students’ experiences of working as equal members of a research team with academic staff. Drawing on the example of a research project funded by the Higher Education Academy, which set out to explore how student volunteering activity might influence employability, the paper highlights three themes emerging from students’ reflections of their experience: responsibilities and tasks of the student researcher; the benefits of being a student researcher; and working with students and staff from other disciplines.
