Who are we?
Part business, part charity, part membership body – students’ unions are all seriously fun places to work. They are organisations in their own right. Professionally run, but different. Professional teams support Elected student leaders so as they make change, improve lives and fulfil potential, we help make it happen. The Union of Brunel Students is one of more than 550 students’ unions across the country. And with more than 14,000 members, 150 clubs and societies, a huge range of services and a bold strategy, we’re one of the most exciting.
