Open University Students Association

£26,495 - £31,604 pa, ADID 10689

Permanent

Based in Milton Keynes

The Organisation

The Open University Students Association is the largest Students Association in the UK serving the interests of over 175,000 part-time students spread across the UK, Europe and beyond. Our job is to represent the interests of this vast and extremely diverse body of students. Whilst we operate within a world-class University, we are not governed by the OU. The OU Students Association is an independent organisation, a registered charity in its own right, run by elected student leaders. Our team of dedicated, professional staff provide the vital support needed to deliver excellent services across the breadth of our student population.

The Job

In this exciting role, the postholder will work to develop and deliver projects that encourage the wider active engagement of the student body, to build a strong and vibrant student community. Working within a busy team, some of the first tasks within the role will be to develop the planning of the 2018 Students Association Conference and to build on work around the Students Association presence at Residential and Day Schools. You will also support the selection process for the University’s next University Challenge team.

The Person

You should have a good general standard of education with experience in planning and delivering projects, a creative mind to develop new ideas and the ability to generate engaging content for our social media and other communication channels. You will be highly organised, self-motivated and capable of working under pressure to tight deadlines.
