We're a students' union set in the heart of Clifton and we represent all students at the University of Bristol.
Part business, part charity, part membership body – Bristol SU is a seriously fun place to work. Our professional staff do something extraordinary every day: we support student leaders to give people a voice in their education, help people get the most out of their student experience and help people make the change they want in the world. We have over 22,000 members, 300 clubs and societies, a huge range of professional services, and a bold strategy to inspire pride in the Union.
Bristol SU is recognised through numerous accreditations and awards including Investors in People, Investors in Diversity, the Workplace Wellbeing Charter and more. No wonder 94% of our employees* would recommend us as a good place work.
