Job Description



A fantastic opportunity to join the largest UK student accommodation provider within their unique Events & Experience team!


This well-established and successful student accommodation provider has 6 sites across the UK which house over 3000 students. They are now seeking a diverse and creative Experience Manager to join their Events and Experience team based on their West Yorkshire campus.

The campus consists of a 1300 bed "village" situated within 30 acres of land which provides accommodation for 1st year students at the University.

Due to their campus being away from the nearest town, it is vital that they provide a unique, fun and exciting experience to students to generate and maintain interest whilst also providing a safe and easy transition from home-life to uni-life by holding a range of events, workshops, day trips and themed evenings throughout the academic year. Alongside this, they also offer their venue to a range of corporate clients for conferences, dinners, parties and weddings.

Offering a truly rewarding and ambitious working environment, this is a great opportunity to work creatively and really support the vision for providing a fantastic customer experience!


Reporting to the Commercial Manager and working across all three main areas, no two days will ever be the same! The three areas of work include: Student Experience, Commercial Events and Summer Camp management. Your duties across all three areas will include:

Student Experience
Implementing new projects to enhance student experience
Managing each event and activity from concept through to delivery
Budget management
Working closely with the accommodation team, operations and marketing team to ensure students needs are being met to improve student retention
Mentoring 10 social reps who carry out market research, surveys and promotion campaigns

Commercial Events
Researching and developing sales leads to maximise the use of the venue and accommodation
Responding to any enquires via email or telephone
Working closely with the commercial manager to develop proposals for clients
Creating new events to attract custom outside of the campus and promote the venue

Summer Camp
Creating and developing programmes and events to take place during Summer camp
Promoting the summer camp proactively to identify attendees
Working closely with the marketing team to update social media platforms


The ideal candidate should have full end-to-end event management experience whilst encompassing knowledge for the sports industry. Knowledge of organising events within a student environment or summer camp environment would be desirable. Candidates will have experience managing multiple projects simultaneously and must be confident working in a varied but fast paced environment due to the nature of the role.

In return, they offer a fantastic salary, a great working environment and most of all great career development in a company that has huge plans for the future!
