Why work with the SU
Tell me about the University of Suffolk Students’ Union
If you are looking for an organisation where no day is the same - Hola, that's us. We are bold, punch well above our weight and work as a team to provide the best experience for our 5,000 members. We are run by students for students and we provide the materials to develop, engage and inspire our members every day.
We have just developed our two-year strategic plan which focuses on being awesome in three areas: Relevance, Engagement and Quality. Based in Ipswich, we provide Student Opportunities in the form of sports, societies and events. We offer Advice for when things aren’t going great and we run a programme of Freshers’ and events for when they are.
We are new, ambitious and ready to get started. If this sounds like your cup of tea (and you can actually make a decent cup of tea), then we want you to bring your enthusiasm, ideas and passion to our team.
The Suffolk Student Well-being Ambassador (SSWA) will be a new pilot ambassador role within the Student Union team. The SSWA will engage and represent both the University of Suffolk and Students' Union online and offline by promoting well-being events and initiatives. For example, SU schemes including Active Well-being, Pets as Therapy and Random Acts of Kindness as well encouraging the use of Student Services drop in sessions. This post will also include working on a co-produced research project alongside a researcher within the Suffolk Institute for Social and Economic Research. The research project will revolve around student experiences of university and how contextual factors might influence their sense of well-being whilst studying using qualitative methods. The SSWA would be involved in all stages of the project, including development, data collection, analysis and dissemination, and will receive training and support in research methods and safeguarding. The SSWA will be expected to provide ongoing advice and insight as the University mental health strategy develops, informing policy, practice and service development across the University and the SU.
