Join the Student Union’s Activities team, supporting student-led community volunteering groups and sourcing new projects with external partners!

We have an exciting opportunity for a pro-active individual who enjoys working with a range of partners, including students, University staff and charity organisations, to coordinate volunteer and fundraising projects. You may already be working in a fundraising role or supporting volunteers in a local charity and now want to develop your project and event management skills, as well as the opportunity to mentor a range of students with their own student-led projects.

You will join a busy team to:

  • Support event organisation
  • Network with University and charity partners to embed student volunteer projects
  • Support our student led groups with their events
  • Provide general fundraising support, including monitoring of accounts
  • Promote the area to students, staff and the local community

You will be required to build partnerships with internal teams across the Students' Union (SU) and the University, as well as networking externally across local charities, schools and other organisations, to create a culture of voluntary and social action. You will be responsible for working with our student-led community volunteer groups, including RAG our student led fundraising group, so as to support them with the delivery of their events and the development of their offer to the student body. You will also be required to source a range of volunteer opportunities and provide support with volunteer and fundraising good practice.

We are looking for someone with experience in networking with a range of partners, mentoring volunteers in leading projects, as well as an understanding of fundraising and event management. You will also be required to market and promote student volunteering within the community.

You will be able to work independently and calmly under pressure, yet work well as part of a team and have strong time management and interpersonal skills.

More than just a “job”, this is an opportunity for committed and ambitious people to help shape our organisation and the lives of the students we represent. Our staff enjoy a safe and pleasant working environment, with a variety of benefits. Join us and be part of our story!
