Queen Mary Students’ Union exists to work together with our students to improve students’ lives. As the Student Representative Coordinator, you’ll contribute to the improvement of students’ lives by supporting the Student Voice Team, Vice President Barts and The London and other elected student representatives to organise student-facing activities and lobby for improvements to the student experience.
The role is student-facing, and you’ll be working closely with elected representatives and students, so it is essential that you have a good understanding of the needs of students, have excellent communication skills and can meet our students in an approachable and empathetic way. You’ll support the reps to deliver their manifesto projects, prepare for meetings and organise student-facing activities, including the peer-mentoring scheme and large-scale events. You’ll support a range of administration and process such as coordinating funding panels, and collating content for newsletters, as well as supporting our work across the campuses, including managing internal and external stakeholder relationships in a collaborative and professional manner.
It’s an exciting time to join our team, as we are about to move into a new space on our Whitechapel Campus. The Student Representative Coordinator will play a key role in ensuring this transition goes smoothly and our reps and students settle in well in our new home.
The post is a full-time (35 hours per week), permanent appointment. Starting salary will be £30,642 per annum inclusive of London Allowance and raises one point annually as set out in the QM Pay and Grading Structure. Benefits include 30 days annual leave, plus university closure days, free gym membership, pension scheme and interest-free season ticket loan.
Candidates must be able to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the UK in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. Where required this may include entry clearance or continued leave to remain under the Points Based Immigration Scheme.
