We’re looking for an enthusiastic student to join us for a 15 week summer internship to work on transferring our web pages across to a new platform - reviewing and rewriting as you go. It’s an exciting opportunity to look at how we can increase awareness and engagement in what the Student Union does. The role will also be active in implementing our Freshers Week marketing campaign over the summer, including writing copy and monitoring social media.

Marketing and Communications are key priorities for us at the moment, and year on year we are seeing growth in our engagement scores. We are keen to continue our past work – whilst hopefully bringing in new ideas.
