Student Activities Development Senior Officer

Full Time, Permanent

£23,175 – £25,234

This role was created to help students really make the most of their time here with us, to develop their academic life, to build their confidence and personal and professional connections and to make sure they’re supported to be happy, well and thriving here at Uni. We’ve written a plan that spells out how we want to make students’ experience here valuable for life, so do take a look.

In this role you’ll play your part by delivering our new student activities programme, and coming up with strategies in the future to shape what we do, making sure the biggest number of students have the best experiences for them, removing barriers to participation and empowering students to develop themselves. There’s scope to grow and develop with the programme you’ll shape. We think it’s a great job, and we’re looking forward to hearing from you on how you’ll deliver this work now and how you’ll shape it in the future to ensure we deliver the social change we’re looking to make.
