Who we are
Part business, part charity, part membership body – students’ unions are 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.
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 decided that all candidates have to complete our Application Form and Equal Opportunities Monitoring and Contact Form in order to apply for a job.
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.
Please Note: Due to the large volume of applications we receive, we may not be able to provide feedback for your application. If you have not heard back from us by the specified interview date, or two weeks from the closing date (whichever is later), unfortunately you have not been shortlisted for an interview.
