Looking for a job that's literally on your doorstep?

By UALSocial 11 May 2021

Are you enthusiastic, hard-working and looking for paid work for the new academic year?

If so, we have the perfect job for you.  


Halls Reps are students who live and work in halls as part of the UAL Social Programme. They come from all over the world, are at any college and do any course. We hire across all 12 halls of residence and it is a Halls Reps role to run events and wellbeing activities in halls. Ultimately, making sure all students are looked after at every stage of their journey halls and have the best experience possible.

In 2019, Halls Reps ran over 1,800 activities, including yoga sessions, afternoon teas, excursions to Bath, Oxford, Cambridge, plus monthly theatre trips and termly food festivals. 

With the impact of COVID-19 we had to halt face-to-face events and gatherings, however, were able to move to an entirely online programme hosting a range of events. From twerkshops and dance fitness to film nights and virtual hangouts we have hosted daily events this year and had over 15,000 attendees.

Going forwards, we hope to get back to a new normal. With the aim to have face-to-face events back up and running by the new term but to continue with online events such as our ever-popular life drawing.

The Halls Rep role is a great way for you to make friends yourself, and gain really important life skills that will look amazing on your CV.
