Who we are

Oxford SU is a charity that exists to represent the 26,000 students studying at the University of Oxford. As a student-led democratic membership organisation, an SU is unlike any other charity. It’s the issues that matter to students that drive us. Here, they can feel assured that their views count, their voice is strong, and together we’ll work to make student life even better.


Oxford SU has recently embarked on an exciting journey of transformation. Over the next 12 months, we will be working with the student body to redefine what the Students’ Union at Oxford University looks like, alongside continuing to deliver our essential services. The Communications Coordinator will work across both business-as-usual communications and will support the transformation team in keeping the membership engaged in our progress at all stages of the project.

About the role

The post-holder will deliver the Students' Union (SU) communications and media activity, ensuring effective and consistent use of all communication channels, helping to enhance the student experience and engagement through attractive and creative content.

About you

We are looking for a creative, enthusiastic and motivated self-starter who is passionate about higher education and supporting students to make a difference. The successful applicant will be confident in creating and delivering communication plans and relevant content across a variety of platforms.
