Doing professional, differently.

This site is the home of Careers in Students’ Unions. We know Students’ Unions are amazing organisations – part business, part charity – and all seriously fun places to work.

NUS Charity’s Careers in Students’ Unions site was created in 2017 with the aim of raising awareness about our unique organisations as great places to work, attracting and retaining outstanding people into our movement.

Annually the site sees over 44,000 visitors making it a great place for Students’ Unions to promote the huge variety of professional roles available up and down the UK.

Any NUS-affiliated students’ union / student associations can advertise a vacancy on this website. Non-members can also advertise a vacancy, but you may need to contact us first to add your Students’ Union / Student Associations to the employer drop-down list.  You must first set up a union profile by clicking ‘Register Now’ below. Your union profile is your chance to communicate to potential candidates and find out why they would want to work as part of your team. After setting up your union profile you can then add vacancies which are automatically linked to your profile.

As part of the JobBoard.com network, Careers in Students’ Unions is able to ensure that your job reaches the maximum possible audience of relevant job seekers.
