We’re doing some of the most interesting and exciting things in our sector. We’ve won awards for our innovative approach and we’re on the path to excellence. You can see for yourself how we've used our platforms to rebrand and reposition ourselves.

 

This role exists to ensure that we understand what our members think about us, delivering services to increase our reach and levels of engagement. It works across the organisation to ensure as many students as possible are participating in our democracy and campaigns, whilst our communications content and approach positions us to be considered a creative organisation by students at University of the Arts and championing a better LSE experience by students at LSE.

 

This role is likely to appeal to someone wanting to prove themselves at the next level; we’ll provide the support and training to a passionate and enthusiastic individual to make sure you can make the transition into this role. It is perfect for someone who wants a career in engagement, communications or stakeholder management within the voluntary or public sector.

 

You will manage a team of three middle managers, nine frontline staff, a freelance designer and up to ten student staff; you will have excellent interpersonal skills, the ability to motivate a large team and the project management skills to ensure we take ideas through to implementation and evaluation. You will use your experience of working with students or under-involved groups to deliver projects and activities. You will have an understanding about the strategic importance of communications and know how it can be used to position an organisation as more legitimate.
