Thank you for your interest in the position of The Deep End Assistant Manager for Greenwich and Kent Students’ Unions Together (GK Unions) partnership.
The Greenwich & Kent Students’ Unions Together partnership is a unique set up in that it provides student union services to students from the universities of Greenwich and Kent studying at the Medway campus. The partnership means that we have close working relationships with each of the students’ unions (Greenwich Students’ Union & Kent Union) to ensure the students at Medway have access to services and are represented effectively.
Kent Union (the representative body for students of the University of Kent) is the managing partner for the GK Unions partnership meaning that all financial and legal aspects of the partnership are the responsibility of Kent Union’s Board of Trustees, and hence this role is employed directly by Kent Union.
