Part business, part charity – students’ unions are seriously fun places to work. They are organisations in their own right. Professional teams support elected student leaders to make change, improve lives and fulfil potential, we help make it happen.

Nottingham Trent Students’ Union (NTSU) is one of more than 550 students’ unions across the country. With more than 40,000 members, 300 student staff and nearly 60 career staff, along with huge range of services across multiple campuses we are one of the biggest. We run coffee shops, bars, nightclubs, advice centre, representation, student groups and much more.
