Full Time
Contract Type

Brookes Students’ Union makes a huge difference to the lives of our members through the work that we do with them; from making sure they receive an excellent education to helping them make lifelong friends, from campaigning for better mental health support, to enabling them to celebrate the end of the year in style. Everything we do is for our members.  Students’ unions have come a long way from the era of cheap club nights with £1 pints of beer. They have responded to the changing concerns of students, who now care more about mental health, wellbeing, employability and getting the most from their degree than they did several years ago.
