AboutThe Students’ Union at Bournemouth University (SUBU) is a successful democratic membership organisation working to improve the student experience for all students at Bournemouth University (BU). SUBU has a vision to have a positive impact on every Bournemouth University student's journey. As a registered charity led by our values and guided by our students, we do this by providing wide-ranging services and support to the 18,000 students at BU. SUBU's main offices are based on the Talbot Campus. SUBU has a £3m per-annum turnover and employs approximately 150 full and part-time staff.
The Student Opportunities Department is a merger of two existing SUBU Departments; Activities and Communities. This larger Department will be responsible for offering a broad spectrum of co and extra-curricular activities for thousands of students at Bournemouth University. This includes supporting a wide variety of clubs and societies, enabling numerous volunteering projects, both locally and internationally, and facilitating our comprehensive sustainability and community work.
The role is best suited to a motivated individual who can be adaptable, and have an innovative approach to leading and developing the department. The role requires resilience, excellent communication and time management skills and the desire to ensure students have the best experience possible.
