Do you have what it takes to be a Union Councillor?

Democracy-CouncilWe are looking for students to become Union Councillors and the election for these will be held at tomorrow’s Union Council.

As a Union Councillor, you are responsible for making policy and holding officers to account, which primarily happens through the 6 Union Council meetings in the year. The role of Union Councillor gives you a chance to engage in discussion about the direction of SUSU, and ultimately in deciding its direction. Councillors also ensure that our Sabbaticals, Student Leaders and other voluntary officers are held to account for their actions and rewarded or scrutinised appropriately.

If you think this sounds like something you might be interested in you can get more information about the role here.

There are ten open positions available, so if you think you have what it takes, make sure you come along to the Senate Room in Building 37 at 7pm on Tuesday 3rd February (TOMORROW) to run in the election. All you need to do is prepare a short speech about why people should vote for you to become a Union Councillor and the election will take place in the meeting.

If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with me on
