Hours: Full Time 35 hours per week
Closing date for applications: Thursday 1st June 9am
Interviews: Wednesday 14th June
We are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate person to join our vibrant Student Activities Team. You will be responsible for facilitating the development and coordination of Guild’s societies and will offer high quality support and guidance to students involved in societies. You’ll build strong relationships with the societies you work with to support their events and activities, online and in person, whilst working on project development within the wider Societies & Volunteering team.
Our ideal candidate will be a team player, who will work in close collaboration with the rest of Student Activities Team to increase student engagement and develop our Student Leaders. We are looking for a highly organised, driven individual, who will use their excellent communication and collaboration skills to enhance the work of the team.
We are especially interested in candidates from under-represented groups, and those who have experience working with diverse populations. We encourage applications from black and minority ethnic candidates, who are currently under-represented within the Guild.
The BAME Guaranteed Interview Scheme at Liverpool Guild of Students is committed to the principles of equality of opportunity. We annually review racial diversity within our workforce and it is a key priority for us to improve racial and ethnic diversity amongst our workforce, and as such we particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic (BAME) candidates and have introduced a BAME guaranteed interview scheme. We recognise that applicants from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds may have experienced additional barriers when applying for new roles.
Therefore, we are taking positive action to address an under-representation within our organisation. If you meet the minimum criteria (at least 80% of the ‘essential’ criteria in the person specification) and are from a BAME background, you’ll be guaranteed an interview. If you are a BAME applicant and would like to be considered under our guaranteed interview scheme, you must indicate this by selecting the relevant box on the Equality and Diversity Monitoring Form. If you do not select this box, your application will be considered alongside all other applications. It is important to note that this scheme guarantees an interview for BAME applicants who meet the minimum criteria. The selection decision at interview will be based on the most suitable candidate, regardless of background or protected characteristic.
