Role: LSESU Funding Coordinator (Part-Time) 16 hours per week

Who are we?

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 on campus, including 200+ societies, 40+ sports clubs through the Athletics Union (AU), the Media Group and Raising and Giving (RAG) charitable fundraising initiatives.

What’s the job?

LSE Students’ Union has one of the largest and best offerings of student clubs and societies in London, which shapes and impacts on almost every student’s experience of LSE. The post-holder for this job will predominantly support these and other individual students and groups in their pursuit of funding for activities and events that positively impact on LSE’s student-staff community. They will do this by managing the operational delivery of the Students’ Union Fund and providing exceptional customer service to the diverse range of members who engage with it.

Who are we looking for?

We’re looking for a professional individual who has a passion for student experience and finance – all within a fast-paced environment. It is important that you have good digital and verbal communication skills, and the ability to provide excellent customer service, to ensure that our students/groups receive the best possible experience from our support. You must have a keen eye for detail and an organised approach to your work, as you’ll be handling sensitive data/information and have various competing priorities at any one time. Applicants should also be positive, committed and approachable, with a desire to work in a democratic organisation that services a culturally diverse membership.

Why apply?

Are you excited by the challenge! The exact opposite of corporate, we’re progressive, daring and creative individuals working to make a difference in unconventional workplaces. You will want to make a difference to the lives of our student community.
