Thank you for your interest in the position of Representation Coordinator at Kent Union. We are a vibrant, student-led organisation with a bright future ahead of us. We, alongside many organisations, have needed to make difficult decisions over the last year, but are building back stronger with a renewed focus and energy to amplify the voice of our members and ensure they have a fantastic student experience. Our driving force is our new strategy, which sets out our priorities over the next four years. Students are the reason Kent Union exists.

We are there through their university journey. Our amazing staff and volunteers work towards improving their experience, whether it’s helping them with their studies, practicalities of life or to have fun.

This role is based within the Representation and Democracy Department which is fundamental to Kent Union, amplifying the voice of our members, increasing the influence and impact of Kent Union as a campaigning and representative organisation.

As Representation Coordinator you will be key in implementing exciting changes, as well as coordinating our programme of over 300 Student Reps to successfully represent their peers at the university and enhance their learning experience.
