AboutUnion of Kingston Students exists to support, empower and enrich the lives of all students at Kingston University. We are a registered charity with student members elected across a range of roles to lead the organisation, supported by a team of permanent staff who are responsible for the operation and management of the union. The students’ union works collaboratively as a critical friend to build an inclusive and broad-based environment for the 15,000 students whose lives are transformed during their time in Kingston. As a union, we work hard to enrich the lives of our students through representation, more than 100 societies, competitive and non-competitive sport, volunteering and advice.
We are looking for a commercially minded, dynamic individual to join our team as the next Commercial Coordinator. We are looking for someone who possess excellent verbal and written communication skills and can work flexibly as this role will not always be a traditional Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm job. Whilst you will focus on some planned commercial projects in the office, you will also be on call for Not My Beautiful House last-minute needs as we are open outside of office hours, for example there may be occasional shifts on the weekend and after hours. The postholder will also be required to attend some events so that these moments can be reflected in our communications. You will have a positive impact on the students and staff you interact with and should be able to create and build strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
If you have experience facilitating commercial activities and developing new income streams, then you are just the person we are looking for.
This is a truly exciting opportunity to join UKS, with a fun, exciting and flexible working environment with a strong supportive culture that is committed to ensuring our people have a great experience and develop their potential.
