AboutStudents’ Union UCL is the representative body for all students at UCL. We are a democratic, studentled organisation, run by UCL students whom you have had the chance to elect. The Union is a registered charity and we exist to represent the needs of all UCL students, to provide you with a range of services to help you maximise your university experience and support you develop your skills and interests while you are at UCL. Vision Our vision is to open up opportunities for students during their time at UCL and enable them to make a fuller contribution in their future lives.
Over a year, we support participants to gain vital access to both knowledge and opportunities including a paid 8-week research placement and subject specific mentoring. Once graduated, they join our growing alumni community where we continue support throughout their career. We also provide high quality training and guidance to mentors and supervisors engaging with the programme. Through our race and cultural literacy training we aim to build understanding, providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for our participants and marginalised groups more broadly. This year we are supporting 50 participants from low socioeconomic backgrounds with 82% identifying as Black, Asian or minority ethnic.
This role will be pivotal in building our Alumni support package, continuing support for our In2research graduates into their academic careers. The post holder will be working across three key partners in the In2research programme: UCL, In2scienceUK and Students’ Union UCL.
The post is available immediately at 0.8FTE with a potential to move to full time. It is available immediately funded to November 2025 in the first instance by a grant from Research England and Office for Students.
Applicants must have strong communication and organisational skills. We are seeking someone who is approachable, with strong interpersonal skills and able to manage their time effectively. A passion for social mobility and building communities is essential and experience in working with multiple organisations would be highly desirable.
