Job Description

UEL Students’ Union is a progressive charity that supports 15,000 students that study at the University of East London. We are based in one of the most diverse boroughs in the world and our membership proudly reflects the communities we are based in.

Our purpose is to support and empower our students by representing their views and providing a range of supportive services, events and activities to make university life the amazing experience it should be.

We are currently emerging from a period of reflection where we have heard from more than 1,000 of our students. This has helped us understand the incredible diversity of our students and their differing needs. We will now work to build a students’ union that champions their aspirations and can deliver what’s needed to make a difference.

We are excited about this and have invested in six new managerial posts, to give us the expertise needed.

As our Activities Manager, you will lead the development and enhancement of our student activity groups. Our activity groups enrich university life by supporting community‐building and social cohesion throughout the University.

You will help us regrow our number of activity groups as well as support the establishment of new student‐led activities.

It is important to embed a culture that encourages student leadership and personal development within those groups and activities.

If you are excited by the opportunity to help us do things differently, empower others and build a students’ union that can better support our students, then this is the role for you.

If you can operate in environments where change is constant, challenges multi-faceted and where solutions require innovative thinking, you’ll thrive here.

You’ll also need to be self-driven, able to operate with autonomy and be able to balance competing priorities.

Diversity is one of the defining features of life at UEL, with over 155 nationalities represented in our student body. Within Newham where we are based, over 74% of residents as from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.

As we grow our staff team, we are passionate about making our teams representative of the students we support and the communities we operate in. We therefore especially welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates and other candidates typically underrepresented in leadership.
