Student Officers are responsible for representing specific groups and areas of work within the Students’ Union. You will be the voice for all students helping with key decision making and campaigns throughout the year. Our Student Officers are part-time volunteers, so you will need to be a continuing student to take one of these roles on. You’ll gain a wealth of experience and employability skills volunteering with the Students’ Union and can put yourself forward for recognition through our STRIVE scheme.
Student Trustees focus on the strategic direction of the Students’ Union, ensuring that the Union creates and implements strategies that meet its objectives. You will sit on the Trustee Board and will help to ensure students are at the heart of financial decision making at the Union.
If one of these roles sounds like the opportunity for you, nominate yourself today here – susu.org/elections.
