You will provide support to the planning, organisation and delivery of a range of projects and events enhancing the student experience, such as start of session activities for new students and regular welfare events. You will analyse engagement and feedback, identifying and implementing improvements to SSWs approach to communicating its key messages.
The work will be undertaken in collaboration with colleagues across SSW, other areas of SRS and the rest of UCL (including Communications and Marketing (CAM), the Students Union and the Vice-Provosts Offices).
