The Students’ Union runs a variety of services for students including sports, societies, campaigning, volunteering, representation, as well as a high profile advice centre and shop. We’re proud to support the Living Wage Foundation with all below positions paid at the current living wage rate of £9.36p/h (effective after holidays, as of May 2017).

We have recently moved into a new home within a flagship University development, and have undergone exciting changes to the services we provide our members. We’re looking for people with ambition, drive and determination to get things done. But more than anything, we’re looking for people with energy and the desire the go that extra mile to help us make student life better. We’re also a Mindful Employer which means we are working towards improving awareness of, and good practices around, mental health to benefit both current and prospective employees.
