Who are we?

Part political, part business and part charity - NUS is a third sector membership organisation with a twist! Professionally run, but different – the exact-opposite of a corporate. Collaborating with over 550 amazing member students’ unions, we provide a huge range of services and support to them. With over 100 creative NUS colleagues working together every day to support elected student leaders - as they make change in the world and improve the lives of students - we help make it happen!

What’s the job?

To deliver support for students’ unions and learner voice structures, enabling them to be autonomous, sustainable and effective in representing the interests of students.

Who you are

  • Experience in leading projects through from initiation and design to delivery and evaluation.
  • Developed knowledge of further and higher education sector in Wales.
  • Enhanced ability to work effectively with a wide range of stakeholders including students, sector agencies and senior decision makers.
  • You’ll be used to travel, getting out and about to engage and support our members face to face, and managing competing priorities.
  • Your personal values will mean you are passionate about developing your knowledge and skills with the wider NUS Wales team and working towards collective goals.

Why apply?

In return for your passion and experience we offer the flexibility for work-life balance, a competitive salary for the non-profit sector and excellent holidays and benefits.

We’re absolutely open to considering requests for job-share or part-time working.

We’re committed to equality of opportunity for all. We welcome applications from individuals regardless of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, gender, or disability.

Whoever you are, if you’re looking for something a bit out of the ordinary, we’d love to hear from you.
