Students’ unions are amazing organisations – part business, part charity – and seriously fun places to work

We believe that an experience led by students, for students, encourages every student to get the most they can out of their time at the University of Bath 

Are you someone who thrives in a busy environment, happy to get stuck in and passionate about student engagement? Then we have the role for you!

We are looking for a proactive and self-motivated individual to join our Student Voice team to develop and support academic representation at The SU.   

The Academic Representation Co-ordinator will co-ordinate a number of key activities throughout the academic year including online elections for elected representatives, training, ongoing support and recognition.  

A core part of the role is to deliver briefings to student representative members of university committees, track and report on trends and update representatives on key issues in Higher Education to ensure an effective and informed student voice.

We are looking for someone with outstanding organisation skills, who can demonstrate excellent team working and the ability to work on their own initiative.  Strong communication skills to a range of audiences will be needed to succeed in this role.  Good knowledge of the Higher Education sector and previous experience of working with volunteers are essential and experience of working in a students’ union would be desirable.

For any enquiries about the role please contact Chloe Whittaker, Education Manager (, however, please ensure that your application is submitted via the University website.

We value, promote and celebrate inclusion, challenging discrimination and putting equality, diversity and belonging at the heart of everything we do. We aim to be an inclusive university, where difference is celebrated, respected and encouraged. We truly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and backgrounds will lead to a better environment for our employees and students, so we encourage applications from all genders, backgrounds, and communities, particularly from under-represented groups such as Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and disabled people, and value the positive impact that will have on our teams.

We have made a positive commitment towards gender equality and intersectionality receiving a Bronze Athena SWAN award, and we are actively working towards a Silver award. We are a family-friendly University, with an increasingly agile workforce, we are open to flexible working arrangements. We’re also proud to be a disability confident employer and are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments you may require.
