Uploaded 15 Oct 2019

Job Description

UKSEDS

UKSEDS is the UK’s national student space society. We run space projects, host conferences, workshops, and career events, and do outreach all over the country. Joining UKSEDS is the best way to get involved in the space sector as a student. You’ll gain all sorts of skills and experience, and have the chance to work with lots of space organisations and members of the community. Most importantly, you’ll get to work with other like-minded students to achieve something incredible.

Role Description

We are recruiting a volunteer to help build our network of branches, engage with our student members, and promote UKSEDS at universities across the country. You will help lead a team of volunteers, organise meetings (on Google Meets), and coordinate your efforts with other UKSEDS teams to deliver the best experience to our members and branches. 

You will work closely with the Executive Committee and be expected to put in 3-4 hours a week on average, but this is flexible depending on your schedule. 

Person Specification

We’re looking for someone who is comfortable working remotely, is highly motivated, and is generally a nice person. If at any point, for any reason, you can’t do those things, that’s fine. We are students too, and we appreciate that exams, deadlines, and life often get in the way of volunteer roles like these. We will work with you to deal with these issues.

Essential:

  • A keen interest in space
  • Be available for 3-4 hours a week on average
  • Motivated and able to take ownership over projects
  • Be a member of UKSEDS (it is free - ukseds.org/join)

Desirable:

  • Experience with your local space society
  • Previous experience in a leadership position
  • Have attended previous UKSEDS events or competitions
