Job description

Our Events and Outreach Manager is geared up for someone that likes being creative, enjoys life in the fast lane, loves having fun but also has an eye on the detail. We have a hyper-diverse community at the University which makes this role even more challenging to create an events and outreach program that is attractive to all students. The last 12 months have significantly challenged our ability to deliver events digitally and we will be looking to take some of this learning forward into our regular programmes of activity.

If this sounds like something you may be interested in, then email us your CV and supporting statement. Your supporting statement should detail your skills, qualifications and experience in the areas covered by the Key Success Criteria and will be used in our shortlisting exercise. Please don’t forget to send us your Equal Opportunities Form. There is no obligation to complete this document, however it does support us as an organisation to ensure we are actively recruiting a diverse staff team and creating an inclusive workplace culture.

The deadline for applications is at 9am on 26th April and our interviews are set to take place on 11th/12th May.

We are Huddersfield Students' Union. To put it simply, we are a charity based on the University of Huddersfield campus. We're led by students for students, and we have one simple mission: to make student life better. Most of our funding comes from the University, but our independence means we can support students in three key areas: advice and support, representation and providing social activities.

Huddersfield Students’ Union has a strategic commitment to be a diverse, inclusive and innovative organisation, in order to make student life better by creating personal connections, inclusive communities and meaningful change. With students and staff from countries all around the world, we are actively committed to creating a fair and just society, but we can only create a fair and just society by taking the steps within Huddersfield Students' Union to create change. 

By ensuring that equality, diversity and inclusion are central to our recruitment principles and processes we can continue developing a diverse and inclusive workplace that benefits our members. This is why we are a Mindful Employer, a Disability Confident Committed organisation and Investors in Ethnicity. As part of the work we are doing, we are actively encouraging BAME, LGBT+, women and minority genders and disabled applicants to apply for our roles. Furthermore, Huddersfield Students’ Union is committed to being an equal opportunities employer and it is our policy to treat all job applicants and employees fairly. We are keen for your experience with Huddersfield Students’ Union to be a good one, and are fully committed to being accessible to all. Please let us know by emailing us, if you require any reasonable adjustments or have any accessibility needs and where possible we will meet your individual needs. Any requests will be dealt with in confidence.

By understanding more about our inclusive workplace culture and the diversity of our staff, we can create changes and develop the organisation to better support our members and staff. As such when you start working for us, we will ask you to undertake a few activities including surveys and training to support you to bring your whole self to work so that you can make student lives better.
