London South Bank University Students’ Union

https://www.southbank.su/

About

We are the recognised representative body of some 18,000 students studying at London South Bank University - one of the most diverse institutions in the country. We believe that education has the power to change everything, and for students at South Bank their time studying will be one of the most transformative experiences of their lives. Helping them get on and get up, coming to university for them is all about improving their career prospects, opening doors to new opportunities and creating a better life for them and those they love.

Summary

Do you want to work for an organisation dedicated to changing lives for the better? We are looking for a Student Advisor to join our Advice and Outreach team to help us transform the way we engage and support students to help them reach their full potential.

Job Description

We are looking for someone with experience in delivering case-based advice on a 1-2-1 and/or group basis. You may have experience as an advisor in a students’ union, but this is not essential. We want to recruit someone who shares our values and can demonstrate a clear ability to support LSBU students through academic processes and offer them advice on how to achieve the best outcome in their circumstances. ​

The role will be line managed by our Advice and Outreach Manager, and play a vital role in the Advice & Outreach team.

To arrange an informal conversation about suitability for the role or get any further information or clarification you can contact Daniella Nzekwe at [email protected]

 

Accessibility

We encourage applications from candidates from a broad range of backgrounds and life circumstances and want to make sure that this recruitment process is accessible to all. We also recognise that this recruitment process, and the opportunity to join the organisation, is taking place during a period of major instability and uncertainty in the wider world, so should you require support related to this process or attending a digital interview, please let us know at any point during the process via [email protected]

 

Commitment to Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

SBSU’s simple vision of disrupting inequality is the heartbeat of the organisation and it is this which steers its decisions, practice, and priorities. It unifies our services, and it drives our staff to remove societal barriers so that all people can achieve their full potential.

SBSU believes that in order to truly disrupt inequality for its members, it must also strive to do this for its workforce – in short, staff must experience it in order to deliver it!

Our Union benefits enormously from having a team of staff with a range of diverse lived experiences. We understand that some life circumstances might be more complex, and that some will have had to overcome more barriers. We value the unique perspectives that are formed by an individual’s background and believe that ‘bringing your whole self to work’ is essential for informed decision making and collaboration and paves the way for high performance so we welcome applications from all, especially if your background and circumstances are traditionally under-represented in the workplace.
