We'd love you to join us at Roehampton SU

We are proud of Roehampton University’s strong sense of community, its diverse student population and its tradition of academic excellence, stretching back to the 1840s. Today the University has a broad range of  expertise across the arts and humanities, social sciences and the human and life sciences, while maintaining its historic strength in education.

RSU aims to create positive change and empowering experiences around the University. RSU is a student led organisation with 3 sabbaticals (officer trustees) and 20 part-time officers elected each year. The elected 23 officers make up the Students’ Union Council and represent the views of our student body. To support the sabbaticals, part-time officers and the union on a whole, we have 17 full-time members of staff and a growing number of student internships. In recent years, RSU has made continual progress, been financially secure, relocated to new offices, engaged more students by representing the student body and delivering on our objectives.

Charitable Objectives

  • Promoting the interests and welfare of students at Roehampton University during their course of study by representing, supporting, empowering and advising our students.
  • Being the recognised representative channel between students and Roehampton University as well as any other external bodies.
  • Providing social, cultural, sporting and recreational activities and forums for our students to discuss, debate and develop themselves personally.

RSU are looking for individuals committed to the role Students’ Unions play and support the values of student leadership, democracy, not-for-profit and inclusivity. Ideally we are seeking to appoint individuals who will add a mix of skills and diversity to our trustee board. Below are the following areas we are looking to gain strengths, but all applications are welcomed and will be considered:

  • Finance and Accounting
  • Legal
  • Commercial

We are focussed on increasing the diversity of the Board and are particularly interested in hearing from candidates from a BAME backgrounds as well as female candidates.

We are online, here's the University, and we're a registered charity
