Are you passionate about Student Pride? Perhaps you're great at talking to people or love helping arrange events? Maybe you're better at more online stuff. Well, it's your lucky day.
National Student Pride are now recruiting! We're looking for a Student Liason Officer, Social Media Manager, Graphic Designer and members for our Events and our Arts team.
An event that's been running for 12 years in 2017, it started out as a small event at Oxford Brookes University in 2005 with a trainee vicar giving the talk. Boy, has it grown since then! Student Pride has now been hosted in Oxford, Manchester and Brighton, whilst continuously growing, and has now set up camp happily in the UK's Capital, London.
Everyone who applies must be enthusiastic, proactive and hardworking. In addition to tasks specific to the role you apply for, everyone on the committee plays a part in the running of the big event. The experience and contacts you will make will become invaluable, making it a great thing to have on your CV. Both Students and Graduates can apply and ideally you'd need to be in or close to London, as that's where regular meetings will be held.
Apply today and we can't wait to meet you!
Interviews will be on Wednesday October 12th, with training in Central London near Baker Street on the afternoon of October 15th.
