Who we are

Part business, part charity, part membership body – students’ unions are all seriously fun places to work. They are organisations in their own right. Professionally run, but different. Professional teams support elected student leaders to make change, improve lives and fulfil potential; we help make it happen. 

Founded in 1897, LSE Students' Union is one of the oldest Students' Unions in the UK and 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 of campus, including societies, sports clubs through the Athletics Union (AU), the Media Group and Raising and Giving (RAG) charitable fundraising initiatives. 


About the job

Making the best possible experience for students at LSE is our passion and purpose. On a daily basis you will support a range of student groups to deliver activities and opportunities that support their future careers. 

You will work to develop and build partnerships with students, LSE Careers and PAGE departments and external organisations with a special focus on engaging post-graduate student groups.


Who are we looking for?

We are seeking an enthusiastic individual who is passionate about the student experience, has insights into the HE graduate landscape and has an interest in events.

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

The ideal candidate will have experience of working in a fast paced and demanding environment, excellent interpersonal and communication skills.


Why apply?

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.
