Representation and Democracy Coordinator
University of York Graduate Students' Association

Job Description

Representation is at the heart of everything the GSA does and the introduction of this dedicated post means we can provide better support than ever to all of our postgraduate student representatives. This role is instrumental in ensuring that elected postgraduate students are adequately trained and supported to carry out their roles.

The Graduate Students’ Association is one of only three specialist postgraduate unions in the country. We’re an independent charity primarily funded by the University of York and representing the almost 6000 Masters and PhD students at the University.

Over the last few years the GSA has developed and expanded the services it offers to its members and this staff post is part of the latest phase in development. The successful candidate will be joining our small team of 8 staff and 3 student sabbatical officers, based out of our lively office in the heart of campus west.

We’re looking for an individual with experience of working in education, a passion for student engagement and supporting student representatives, and the ability to help others understand complex information.
