Join our ambitious team to mainstream student social action, and you will receive the support you need to make an impact and fulfil your potential.
Who are Student Hubs?
At Student Hubs we believe when students are supported to learn, connect and do through social action activities, students develop to become active citizens and communities thrive.
That’s why we’ve spent the last 15 years working with institutions across the UK facilitating opportunities for students to do just that – creating a double benefit for students and cities alike.
There are no jobs currently available.
How do we work?
To be truly embedded in the communities we work in our staff team are located across the South of the country, from Bristol to Cambridge. The majority of our roles are hybrid with some opportunity to work from home and some expectation to get out and about connecting in person in the area you work in.
Our conscious approach to culture was designed with you in mind. We offer:
- A minimum leave policy, so you can paid book holiday above and beyond your allowance
- A nine day fortnight trial, for synchronous time off to rest throughout the year
- 25 days paid sick leave so you can take time off when you need it
- A transparent and fair approach to pay, taking into account living wage and inflation at annual reviews
We are also proud to have signed the show the salary pledge, and to be a disability confident employer. Additionally in 2021 and 2022 we made Escape the City’s top 100 organisations to escape to, scoring well for our approach to people and culture.
We are committed to transparency, openness, and continual learning when it comes to equity, diversity and inclusion (ED&I). We encourage our staff, volunteers and partners to approach work, challenges, and relationships with empathy, fairness, and equality. We are bold, social, ambitious, motivational and long term in our approach.
In order to deliver this approach we need a staff team who are committed to learning, unafraid to challenge and able to lead within their work. To empower our staff team we have a range of initiatives.
All staff receive a four part ED&I induction series and an annual refresher. In addition adhoc sessions are delivered throughout the year. All of our training content is regularly updated to reflect best practice, our continued learning as an organisation and feedback from the staff team.
Our team are invited to share as much, or as little, of their own lived experience as they’d like to. We have an ED&I team who spearhead this work internally and invite others to feed into practices on an ongoing basis. We are adaptable and enjoy being challenged as it strengthens our understanding.
Throughout the year staff are supported with processes and guidance to implement best ED&I practices across our activities. These include: setting annual ED&I metrics; discussing ED&I in bi-annual strategy reviews; completing partner and project accessibility audits; implementing reasonable adjustments; collecting, analysing and utilising equal opportunities data from our student participants; and facilitating focus groups to better understand the barriers to engagement facing certain groups.
