I’m a students’ union looking to recruit, how do I advertise a vacancy?
Any NUS-affiliated students’ union can advertise a vacancy on this website. Non-members can also advertise a vacancy, but you may need to contact us first of all to add your Students’ Union to the employer drop-down list. You must first set up a union profile by clicking ‘register’ on the homepage banner and selecting employer. Your union profile is your chance to communicate to potential candidates 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.
I would like to access the employer brand toolkit to help me write a new advert. Where do I find this?
You can download the employer brand toolkit, and other recruitment and selection tools and resources for Students’ Unions from the HR Hub on NUS Connect.
I've posted a job but did not submit the job, where is it?

I’m looking to help promote my Student’s Union to prospective candidates/employee’s on the site – how can I do this?
You can do this by asking your staff to help tell their story in the blog or via the career pathways map. Staff in your Student’s Union can write a piece detailing their journey/route to get to where they are today, and help you attract other people to the movement.
Guidance on writing a piece for the blog can be found here, and guidance for writing a piece for the career pathways map can be found below:
As a union we are a registered charity, do we need to pay VAT on our recruitment posts?
No, charities are given relief from paying VAT on all types of paid-for adverisements, including staff recruitment. Please send proof of charity status in the form of charity number and NUS can amend their records.
