Student Services is a diverse group of services and providing the very best student experience is at the heart of everything we do. We have a brand new and exciting opportunity to join us as part of our new Student Events and Communities team.  

 

The role 

Reporting to our Student Events and Communities Lead, the successful postholder will be responsible for the growth and development of our free ‘Be Active’ programme.

Example areas of responsibility will include planning and delivering recurring and one-off active events and campaigns, both virtually and in person.

Our ideal candidate will have: 

  • Significant passion for working collaboratively with students. 

  • Experience of planning and organising events and campaigns, ideally with a focus on sport/active lifestyle. 

  • The ability to quickly develop relationships and work collaboratively with colleagues from across the University and the Students’ Union.
