Who are we?
Part political, part business and part charity - NUS is a third sector membership organisation with a twist! Professionally run, but different â the exact-opposite of a corporate.

As a key member of the Race Equity and Inclusion Team, you will lead on developing resources, informing training and supporting and advising studentsâ unions and the NUS group on student and workplace faith and belief topics. You will also provide advice and support the delivery of projects to tackle institutional racism, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism.
Who you are
To excel in this exciting role, you will be able to demonstrate a passion for creating change, be motivated, innovative and professional. You will have developed a track record of delivering projects to promote awareness and understanding, reduce barriers and promote faith and belief inclusion. In return, we can offer you the opportunity to join a friendly and enthusiastic team who are passionate about effecting change through our work.
In return for your passion and experience we offer the flexibility for work-life balance, a competitive salary for the non-profit sector and excellent holidays and benefits.
