This role will be working in a fast-paced team, supporting the delivery of the King's Education Awards 2024. The awards will take place on the Strand Campus on Thursday 13 June 2024 from 4-8pm, so applicants must ensure they are available to be on campus on this date and time for the event. 



Please note: the maximum number of hours that a student can work per week is 20 hours. The number depends on external regulations governing working for international students as well as university regulations around working while studying. If you hold another role, please ensure the hours from this role combined with the hours from any other roles held do not exceed 20 hours per week.  



 Responsibilities   



For the King’s Education Awards 2024, you will primarily be based at the mug collection table where nominees will arrive to collect their mugs which will require you to:
