The Role 

The University of Southampton Students Union is looking for two Activities Coordinators to specifically coordinate, develop and support our diverse range of student Clubs & Societies and our Student Led activity and campaigns.   

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who understands the needs of students, has experience in balancing multiple projects and is excited about co-developing a diverse programme of activities, particularly around the creative industries, fundraising, and mental health and wellbeing.  

About You 

Activities coordinators are the key contact for our club & society committees and student volunteers and will both develop their skills and provide general information support and guidance on their activities and events. For this reason, we are looking for candidates who have a strong understating of health and safety, have an ability to produce budgets and event plans and who can both collect and respond appropriately to insight.  

We are looking for an enthusiastic person who is approachable and can effectively communicate, engage, and establish relationships with our students; with a view to increasing engagement and improving their university experience.  A ‘can-do’ flexible attitude is needed in this fast paced and diverse student-led environment.
