About us

We’re looking for 8 enthusiastic, creative and reliable people to join our Students’ Union Events Team as event officers. As a team we help to organise and run some of the Universities biggest events, which range from small scale, to the larger arena events.

Last year, we organised the following events: Student Union Election’s Results Night, Varsity Ice Hockey, Varsity Futsal, Varsity Hockey, Varsity Basketball, National Societies Awards, Sports Ball, International Ball, Graduation Ball as well as helping with many officer events and running our own smaller-scale events.

As well as getting to organise and run the events, we’ll provide you with free first aid training and employability workshops! You’ll be able to get references and some amazing experience to add to your CV, all whilst being a part of a fun and thriving team.

Don’t worry if you haven’t previously had any events experience, we will provide you with full training and support along the way!

Hear from the team…


“Being part of the events team has been such an incredible experience and I’ve loved every minute of it. The experience gave me the confidence to apply, and be given, an events based placement this past Summer. Most importantly, I made some absolutely amazing friends along the way - I can’t wait to come back again next year as one of the team leaders.” - Isobel Davidson, Events Officer
