We make a real difference to the lives of students
The National Union of Students is a voluntary membership organisation which makes a real difference to the lives of students and its member students' unions.
We are a confederation of 600 students' unions, amounting to more than 95 per cent of all higher and further education unions in the UK. Through our member students' unions, we represent the interests of more than seven million students.
We promote, defend and extend the rights of students and develop and champion strong students’ unions.
We’re looking for talented professionals who are looking for something different to support our student leaders. In our organisation, we know that different is good: the more diversity, the better the ideas, the greater the impact.
If you thrive on diversity, variety, challenge, and creativity is your thing, work somewhere professional, but different.
Our professional team support elected student leaders so as they make change, improve lives and fulfil potential, we help make it happen. And with more than more than 550 member students’ unions across the country, a huge range of services and a bold strategy, we’re committed to taking our national movement from strength to strength.
At NUS we strive to make our community a welcoming, caring and enthusiastic one, fuelling ambition with opportunities and support to help us all achieve our personal and professional goals. 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 holiday allowance. We’re absolutely open to considering requests for job-share or part-time working.
We believe there should be equality of opportunity for everyone to participate fully in a society that celebrates diversity
Our policies and priorities must be student-led and students’ union-focused through building open, transparent and accessible democratic structures that increase performance and strengthen accountability
Students and students’ unions are more effective when they organise together locally, nationally and internationally. Unity is our strength.
We’re committed to equality of opportunity for all. We welcome applications from individuals regardless of their gender, gender identity, marital/civil partnership status, race, sexual orientation, disability including mental health, age, religion or belief or any other dimension of diversity. We want to support inclusive work environments and are working to integrate Race Equity and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) into the everyday culture and activity of the organisation. We are actively looking for people who share our values.
