AboutAn innovative, inspiring and inclusive students’ union MDXSU, Middlesex University Students’ Union, is at the heart of everything that happens at Middlesex. Our vibrant and dedicated team are working together, developing a world-class partnership with Middlesex University, and striving to be the most innovative, inspiring and inclusive students’ union in the UK by 2020.
The Community Partnerships Coordinator role is one at the fore front of the changing face of students unions. Two years ago MDXSU launched the Community Placement scheme.
This initiative is the first of its kind and has linked Middlesex students with partner organisations in the local area to undertake short term, paid roles. These placements allow them to put into practise the skills they are learning through their academic programme, build their experience in a real world environment and to make a positive impact on their local community. It embeds work based learning alongside community organising techniques to help students develop themselves as active participants in wider society. Middlesex University are providing the funding for infrastructure to continue the scheme and the opportunities for the growth of this model are enormous.
You will take the lead in delivering the next stage of the Community Placement scheme. You will need to be innovative in sourcing and developing new opportunities from the local community. You will work autonomously and be able to engage effectively with key stakeholders.
We are looking highly organised individual who is able to take over and run the existing scheme, someone with the ability to move quickly to take advantage of rapidly emerging opportunities and the strong interpersonal skills to build and maintain relationships both on and off campus.
