Volunteering & Representation Administrator
The Open University Students Association is the largest Students Association in the UK serving the interests of over 170,000 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.

Our team of dedicated, professional staff provide the vital support needed to deliver excellent services across the breadth of our student population.
As part of the Volunteering and Representation team, the Administrator will provide high quality administrative support to the Head of Volunteering and Representation and wider team over several projects. The post holder’s duties will include typing and proof-reading documents such as handbooks and training materials; updating and maintaining the volunteer database; scheduling internal meetings, producing agendas and taking minutes; arranging student workshops and training sessions including providing assistance with their organisation and delivery.
