Jobs

Opportunity 1: Become a Community Facilitator

Community Facilitators are returning undergraduate students and post graduate students who are living in our Residences to build a fun, inclusive and friendly community. This is a unique position as you will be employed by King’s as a member of staff, while being a student; allowing you the opportunity to interact with various members of staff and faculty at the university. Through the planning and hosting of events in the residence halls you will be able to create a fun and inclusive community for our students to call home and provide the best student experience for KCL students across central London.

As well as getting paid for this role, you will

  • Organise community events for residence students
  • Receive training that is highly valued by employers
  • Develop communication and networking skills
  • Build on employment experiences for your CV as well as have your achievements recorded through HEAR!

Before you Apply

The application form has been designed to assess your suitability for the role based on the job description, which we strongly suggest you review prior to completing this application to maximise your chances of being shortlisted. Note that you will be asked to provide the name and contact details of two referees, so please have these ready before you begin. Applications for this role will close at 11:59pm (BST) on Friday 17th July 2020.

Please note that you need to book a room with King's Residences before you apply for this role and ensure that you have completed your room booking application once you start your CF application. You will also need to apply for a CF post in the building you have booked a room, i.e. if you have booked a room at Wolfson House, you can only apply to be a CF at Wolfson House.  

I love being able to share my knowledge about King's, university in general and the independence that I learnt in my first year.
