About the Form:

This application form is not for a current LIVE vacancy, but rather a way for you to tell us that you would love to work for YUSU as and when a suitable position becomes available. 

By having this application on file we can let you know directly when a new vacancy that we think you might be interested in is going live (based on the answers you provide). We will ask your permission to: retain your application form for the next academic year (23/24); and to contact you at some point in the future when a position opens that we feel you are a great match for.

We look forward to reading your application and learning more about what you can bring to YUSU.

Please note: If you get to a point where you change your mind (say you find you need to give more time to your studies, or you get a different job that you love elsewhere), then please just email HR on and we will remove your expression of interest.

Working at YUSU:

At YUSU we know that maintaining a great work life balance also improves our team's wellbeing, productivity and happiness, which is why we offer a range of contracts to fit around your studies and home life.

At the start your employment you will be asked to provide your availability, and then during each holiday period you'll be able to discuss this again with your line manager to make sure work still fits around your studies.

Other benefits include:

  • Staff discounts within venues
  • Free tea and americanos in venues 
  • Access to enhanced student discounts (which vary term to term)
  • Free entry to official club nights in town
  • Free 'plus one' access to on campus club nights

YUSU is committed to equality of opportunity - we are an organisation who works very hard to ensure we appoint based on merit. We would particularly welcome applications from candidates with disabilities and/or from Black, Asian and global majority backgrounds.

If you are invited to interview with us we will share our interview questions in advance so you can prepare your responses. We’re more interested in hearing about your experiences and ideas than in testing your memory, and so we want you to feel as prepared as possible.

If you have any further questions about this form or if you have a requirement for adjustments that would make the application or interview process more accessible, please do not hesitate to contact us on
