About

With over 11,000 students at the London School of Economics, we are one of the best universities in the world. We have brilliant and exceptionally talented students and we want to make sure they get amazing opportunities while they are here. We want them to have fun, be part of an active community and be proud of their union. Around 90 staff work together at LSE Students’ Union (LSESU) to deliver extraordinary projects, activities and opportunities for our members. Some of the staff we employ undertake the role alongside their studies as well as supporting over 1200 volunteers who are actively engaged in leading campaigns, societies, sports clubs or seeking to improve their course.

Summary

We're are looking for someone to coordinate and improve student democracy to ensure all student voices are heard and acted upon at LSESU.

Job Description

Please note this is a fixed term position for 2 years.

Who we are

Part business, part charity, part membership body – students’ unions are all seriously fun places to work. They are organisations in their own right. Professionally run, but different. Professional teams support elected student leaders to make change, improve lives and fulfil potential; we help make it happen.

Founded in 1897, LSE Students’ Union is one of the oldest Students’ Unions in the UK and is the representative and campaigning body for students at The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).  Like other Students’ Unions, it also funds and facilitates student activities of campus, including societies, sports clubs through the Athletics Union (AU), the Media Group and Raising and Giving (RAG) charitable fundraising initiatives.

About the job

LSESU is looking for someone who is highly organised and passionate about student experience to join our Representation Team. You will need to have a good eye for detail, a proactive approach, and be willing to get stuck into all aspects of student democracy. The successful candidate will support the Representation Team in the delivery of LSESU’s Democracy Review and elections, alongside other key activities.

This role will involve supporting with a variety of tasks, including liaising with key stakeholders, engagement and outreach planning, and database administration. This is the ideal opportunity for someone with an ability to work collaboratively with people, and a passion for delivering high quality opportunities for membership engagement.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a highly motivated team player who is passionate about delivering change within a dynamic and democratic organisation. The successful candidate will have great communication skills and will be able to work with a variety of stakeholders. An interest in democratic procedure and processes, a commitment to equality and diversity, and an ability to handle politically sensitive situations, are all key to the successful delivery of this role.

Further to the above, we’re also looking for someone who is proficient in both Microsoft Office, and various social media platforms, and who holds excellent time management skills.

Most importantly, we’re looking for someone who wants to get stuck in, contribute to an effective team dynamic, and make a difference. Students’ Unions are innovative, dynamic places to work and we’re so excited about what we’ve got in store for LSE students.

Why apply?

Because you’re excited by the challenge! The exact opposite of corporate, we’re progressive, daring and creative individuals working to make a difference in unconventional workplaces.

Benefits and Perks

In return for your passion and experience we offer:

  • 25 days holidays per year
  • Additional closure periods at Christmas and Easter
  • Free LSE Students’ Union gym membership, advice from dedicated professionals, with a wide range of activities including yoga classes, dance classes, pilates classes
