Edinburgh University Students' Association is looking to recruit an Academic Engagement Coordinator to join our Representation and Democracy team.

The Academic Engagement Coordinator oversees delivery of the Students’ Association’s academic representation system, from recruitment and induction to ongoing volunteer development and community building, requiring a high level of organisation and attention to detail.

As the key staff contact for the Programme and School Representatives, they are responsible for providing project planning and professional support, as well as insight into how Representatives can best achieve their objectives.

To support this work, the Academic Engagement Coordinator must maintain a large network of staff contacts across the University, be confident engaging in stakeholder management, and have excellent written and verbal communication skills.

Alongside colleagues in the Representation and Democracy team, they also empower our five Sabbatical Officers – and particularly the Vice Education – to pursue their objectives, providing advice on achieving institutional change, as well as project planning and professional support.

In addition, the Academic Engagement Coordinator is responsible for delivering the Students’ Association’s annual student-led Teaching Awards, a year-round project culminating in the Spring with a shortlisting process and ceremony.
