  • Advertised from 3rd April 2024
  • 35 hours per week


To effectively engage its membership in its decision-making so it is truly representative, responsive and relevant, it is crucial that HISA’s key processes and structures work smoothly and are evidence-led. The Insight and Democracy Coordinator, in conjunction with the Director of Student Engagement and Representation and other staff, is at the heart of the effectiveness of these processes and structures.

There are two key areas of activity:

  • Democracy – Enhancing student involvement in democratic activities including elections, all-student meetings, and the Executive Committee.
  • Insight – Help officers’ and staff colleagues’ understanding of key issues, through regular training, briefings, research, and analysis.

While the list of key responsibilities is extensive, the role is cyclical in nature due to the nature of the academic year. This means that not all activities will require to be undertaken at the same time, and it should also be noted that the postholder will be closely supported by the Director of Student Engagement and Representation and will work closely with the Development Managers, Advice Service Coordinator, and others. Nonetheless, effective planning of these diverse responsibilities will be a key attribute of a successful candidate.
