Job Description & Person Specification

 

LSE Students’ Union has over 180 active societies covering a wide range of activities from the serious and prestigious, to the light-hearted and fun. We are looking for someone to make sure our students get the best out of their time at LSE by supporting and developing our societies to be the best in the country.

 

You will be working with students everyday, developing societies to put on excellent events and activities in a safe and inclusive manner. You will make sure we’re promoting and celebrating their incredible achievements.

 

You will work with, develop and build partnerships and working relationships with students, LSE departments and other external organisations in London to support societies to push the boundaries of what they can achieve.

 

We are seeking an enthusiastic individual who is passionate about student societies and able to build strong partnerships between societies and the Students’ Union.

 

You will have excellent people skills and be able to work with people on all levels, from students taking part in societies for the first time to senior staff within the institution.

 

The ideal candidate will have experience of working with students in a fast paced and demanding environment, excellent interpersonal and communication skills, the ability to enthuse students and a strong understanding of planning and evaluation. We welcome applications from those with experience working in a higher education setting, but this is not essential, and candidates with experience from other areas will be considered.
