About Student Hubs
We are a fast-growing charity working in UK universities to mainstream student-led social action: empowering a new generation of active citizens. We inspire students to shape a better world through issue-led conferences and speaker events, connect them to opportunities to make a difference during their time at university through volunteering, projects and social enterprise, and support them to become civic leaders in their lives and future careers through our training and social impact careers programmes.
Student Hubs is only 6 years old but has already grown its network to over 25,000 students across our network of Hubs in ten universities. We support hundreds of student groups and work closely with 30 national NGOs and many local community organisations. We run the UK’s leading student events on social & environmental issues, so far giving over 20,000 students the opportunity to hear and meet social innovators from across the world. We run many initiatives to increase student action in the community – and have worked with over 2,000 volunteers in recent years. In Oxford we run our own 9,000sqft building and 100-seater restaurant as part of a sister social enterprise.
As Programmes Manager, you will be responsible for all our social impact careers & student leadership programmes running across the national network of Hubs. In particular, you will support all aspects of the Social Impact Internships Scheme, our flagship careers programme. You will provide leadership and direction to the different local Hub teams to deliver different programmes, ensuring they are effective and sustainable. The job is based in Oxford, with some travel to local Hubs required.
