AboutUEL Students' Union provides advice, representation and activities for more than 13,000 members studying at two campuses in Docklands and Stratford. Both campuses have excellent transport links and a free inter-campus bus. We're currently undergoing a major transformation which has resulted in a restructuring of our staff team. We're currently recruiting eight new staff.
This is a new role. We introduced a new structure for student representation at University and school level last year. We want our student representatives to have the skills and information to make the new system work. The student voice manager will support those student representatives at school (six) and course (~500) level and in community groups (11). We want the manager to undertake research in conjunction with colleagues to ensure actions and policy are informed by evidence, and to support student officers, other student representatives and colleagues to develop policy positions on issues affecting members.
This role is not about running elections; it is about ensuring school and course representatives have the skills and information they need to be effective in their roles. You will have experience of working in a similar role (not necessarily in students’ unions) and will be educated to degree level (or equivalent) or you will have significant relevant policy-making expertise.
