About the job
The Representation Team supports ambitious students to change the LSE experience for the better, whether that’s through a community building event or a campaign. The Student Funds and Projects Coordinator specialises in facilitating student-led initiatives by allocating funding to groups and individuals, as well as providing operational support and guidance. The role is pivotal to empowering our members, particularly our underrepresented groups, such as international students and postgraduates.
This role also supports the Advice Service in the allocation of their hardship fund.
Who we are looking for?
We’re looking for someone who is excited by a student-facing role in a membership led organisation. The ideal applicant will be confident with financial processes and take pride in working accurately. They will have excellent communication skills and the ability to work effectively with other teams.
We’re proud of our organisation and believe the way we work is as important as what we do. We expect our staff to continuously look for ways we can improve the lives of our members and, in return, we offer a supportive environment where they can achieve their full potential.
For more information, please see the job description and person specification.
Because you’re excited by the challenge! The exact opposite of corporate, we’re progressive, daring and creative individuals working to make a difference in unconventional workplaces.
How we recruit
We want to ensure all systems, policies and processes are free from bias or discrimination and are fair and accessible, therefore we ask that all candidates complete our Application Process in two stages:
Part 1 (Application Form) is all about you telling us about your suitability for the role and will be used to determine if you are shortlisted for interview.
Part 2 (Equal Opportunities Monitoring and Contact Form) is personal information – so we can contact you if you are shortlisted for the interview. It also helps us gather and analyse demographic information about our applicants. This part will only be seen by HR and will not have any impact on shortlisting.
Application forms are formatted to ensure the equality monitoring data is removed before applications are seen by the shortlisting panel. This process allows us to ensure that the shortlisting is done in a fair and consistent manner and all applicants are given the same opportunity to demonstrate their abilities.
