We exist to represent approximately 20,000 students at Anglia Ruskin University (ARU). We are a registered charity and company limited by guarantee. Our activities are managed and supported by 45 professional staff members and 55 part-time student staff who work for us alongside their studies. We have a turnover of approximately £2 million per annum and our activities are spread across campuses in Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough.
In addition to our core purpose of being the legitimate representative body for students at ARU, we provide a range of services; academic and welfare advice, support to students running societies and volunteering opportunities in and around the campuses. We also run two bars, a restaurant and a campus shop. Whilst we play an important student representative role that sometimes sees us challenge the University, we work closely with them and support areas of delivery within their strategy.
ARU Students' Union employ students in a variety of roles from bar assistants to admin roles, or even jobs that can give you experience in your chosen area of study, such as student graphic designer. We offer the Living Wage and full training for all roles, and we also understand that there are times throughout the academic year when you will need the flexibility to focus more on your academic commitments.
In addition to our paid jobs, we also recruit volunteers to help us to support the student community at key times in the year. SU Heroes play a key role within our student staff team, welcoming and supporting new and returning students.
