Venue Assistant- southend
this is no normal job.
We're on a journey to become the world's most student-centred organisation and this is your chance to join us.
We are on a mission to deliver an amazing experience to all of our students using the SU Lounge, whether that's coming in for lunch, students putting on their own events or coming along to one of our events.
WHAT YOU'LL DO.
THE DAY TO DAY.
During a shift Venue Assistants are the front-line providers of excellent customer service, meeting and greeting, making everybody feel welcome, carrying out general duties such as preparing and serving food and drinks, till operation, maintaining the security of the area, and looking after/setting up the music, TV screens and other equipment.
What we stand for
Our mission can be easily summed up in four promises we make to all of our members. Every single thing we do falls under one of these promises.
1: We promise to get you an amazing degree and job
We'll fill up your CV, make sure you course is great, and even give out fruit and water before exams. We'll give you all the tools you need to destroy the competition in interviews.
2: We promise to give you a kick-ass membership
Bars, coffee shops, restaurants, a nightclub, hair salon, even a cinema, all on campus. And hundreds of clubs and societies too. You'll never be bored at Essex.
3: We promise to let you shape everything
You're in charge of what we stock in our venues and how we work. You can vote by dropping a token in a box, and write on our walls. You control everything we do together.
4: We promise to be here for everyone
We're a mix of students from 135 different countries of every age, gender, sexuality, religion, year of study and shoe size. We'll look after you whatever.
