Work With Us

Part business, part charity, part membership body – students’ unions are seriously fun places to work. Professional teams support elected student leaders to make change, improve lives and fulfil potential; we help make it happen.

A bit of background

Founded in 1897, LSE Students' Union is one of the oldest Students' Unions in the UK. It is the representative and campaigning body for students at The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Like other Students Unions, it also funds and facilitates student activities on campus, including societies, and sports clubs through the Athletics Union (AU), the Media Group and Raising and Giving (RAG) charitable fundraising initiatives.
