Activities and events manager
Salary: £31K
Job description and person specification

The activities and events manager is responsible for the development of events and activities to support community-building and social cohesion amongst University of East London students. Working with the elected activities and opportunities officer and with support from the activities and events co-ordinator, the person will establish a programme of student-led events and society activities.

You will also be leading work to establish how we can increase our reach amongst students who tend to not participate in our activities at a strategic level with support from colleagues. We are looking for someone who is excited to pilot new ideas and approaches that best suit our diverse student base, which might not fit in a traditional students’ union. This will include working with colleagues to develop training and leadership development programmes appropriate to our students.

The candidate will have a strong events background, good leadership skills and a drive to source solutions to problems.

Salary: £25k
Job description and person specification (full-time) / Job description and person specification (part-time)

As an adviser, you will be there to provide impartial and confidential advice to students on a range of issues including academic and housing matters and complaints. This may take place by phone, email, online or face to face.

You will often be working with students who are facing difficult and complex situations and problems. You will need to respond sensitively and compassionately to students who are anxious and upset.  

We are looking for individuals who can support students in university meetings and panels to advocate on their behalf. You will need to be a strong communicator who can clearly explain issues and solutions to a range of stakeholders such as students and university staff.

As the Students' Union develops its offering to students, you will also support work to inform changes to University regulations, policies, procedures and practices to the benefit of the students.

Marketing and communications manager
Salary: £31k
Job description and person specification

The marketing and communication manager will focus on developing our brand and increasing awareness and participation of our representation work, services and societies. There is a diverse and broad range of students at the University of East London from students joining straight after A-Levels to individuals who want to go back to university and learn something new to international students keen to join one of our postgraduate courses.

We are an independent organisation pushing the University to improve its academic provision and support services for students. Our challenge is conveying our role to students and encouraging more students to get involved in the Students’ Union.

You will also support our drive to generate commercial income through advertising, media sales and other avenues.

The candidate will be passionate about understanding our students and demonstrating this in our copy and marketing activities. You will work alongside the head of marketing and engagement and other colleagues to plan and implement new creative ideas to engage students, measure success and support a re-brand exercise. The candidate will adapt to a fast-paced environment, where we are starting from scratch. It is a great opportunity for someone who wants to make their mark, but it is hard work. However, it is also rewarding!

We welcome applications from individuals with a background in or understanding of membership, not-for-profit or similar sectors.
