Advice and Representation

Salary: £26,444 per annum (Grade 5)

Location: Norwich

Contract: Full Time – 35 hours per week

NUASU is at an important point of growth and change, looking forward to a brighter, stronger future. And as we grow, we’re delighted to be expanding our staff team.

Our aim is to become the best small and specialist union in the UK. With a small and passionate staff and Officer team, our drive and determination stem from our core values: representation, democracy, sustainability, and equity. We pride ourselves in having a unique, student-driven culture, and it’s important that we maintain this as we grow and evolve.

2022-23 was a year of significant development for us. From the massive boost in our grant allocation to the establishment of our first-ever Advisory Board, we have an exciting future ahead. As we progress, our vision includes a more robust full-time team and wider representation through our liberation officers. Our Steering Committee, paired with the new Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity Committee, promises to make our student-centric approach even better.

About the Role

NUASU is looking for someone who matches our values; wants to develop their skills; and understands the importance of putting students at the centre of the services we provide. Norwich University of the Arts Students’ Union is at the beginning of an exciting development journey with this role being key part as we move to a model where career staff develop and deliver the specialist services of the SU.


The post will provide lead support to our President of Education and Representation as well as managing and delivering our advice service, and voice and representation work. A key part of this role will be to lead on the delivery of the SU’s democratic functions, including our Full Time and Part Time Officer elections. The role will work closely with the SU’s Managing Director to collaboratively build and maintain an excellent service to our members, as well as work closely with colleagues in the University's Quality Team.


We are proudly a developmental organisation and expect this post to be filled by someone who comes to us not fully formed but with a strong desire to grow in the role. You might be a full or part time officer at a Students’ Union; already in a career staff role at an SU or from another sector entirely. We are much more interested in your values and work ethic than we are your experience and would encourage applications from anyone who thinks that we’re an organisation that speaks to them.

Closing Date: Wednesday 8th May at 9am

Interview: Thursday 16th May
