Project Manager

Project Manager

We are excited to be recruiting for up to three new Project Managers to deliver on our national sustainability engagement projects, programmes and campaigns.

Introducing SOS-UK

SOS-UK is a new sustainability and wellbeing charity, launched by the National Union of Students’ in October 2019. Through SOS-UK we plan to build on NUS’s successful student-led sustainability and wellbeing projects, programmes and campaigns, allowing us to go much further and faster in response to increasing student demand for our work.

We are an education charity focussing on sustainability, we work across all forms of education and through our work we aim to:

• Get more students leading on, and learning for, sustainability.
• Repurpose the education system around the climate emergency and ecological crises.
• Make sustainability more inclusive, so it is for everyone.
