An exciting opportunity has arisen to help lead the organisation and delivery of the annual Academic Impact Awards in partnership with Kingston University (previously known as the SLLTAs).

The awards recognise and rewards those staff and students who are committed to delivering great teaching and learning processes for their students. The awards allow students to have their say on what good teaching looks like and to recognise members of staff and students that have gone the extra mile.  Nominations are then assessed against the student-set criteria and the winners selected.

The culmination is the annual awards ceremony, planned so that students and staff can show their appreciation and acknowledge the work of individuals across the university. More importantly it provides an opportunity for showcasing best practice and helps the University improve its teaching  adn learning practices.

This role will be very diverse including administration and event planning. There are various stages involved: from publicity, to compiling nominations, organising panel meetings, awards ceremonies, as well as writing reports. The ideal candidate will have excellent communication and administrative skills as well as knowledge of the AIA and the Course Representation system.

The role is also suitable for recent Kingston University graduates, ideally with a background in course representation, who are looking to gain professional experience.

The closing date for applications is Thursday 28th March at 1pm.  Interviews to be held on Friday 29th March & Monday 1st April.

Completed applications should be submitted to the Union of Kingston Students via email to

Please note CVs will not be considered – only completed application forms.

The successful candidate is expected to start immediately after appointment.
