Every year, you (the students!) elect four Sabbatical Officers who work full time (paid) in the Union to represent you to the University and beyond. You also elect a group of part time Officers called 'Executive' who work on a voluntary basis on campaigns and projects. There are main Elections in March every year, and a by-election in October/November.

If you've ever considered running for a position, it's a great way to get experience, boost your CV, work on things you're really passionate about and make change here at the University & Students' Union. 

If you have any questions, e-mail Rosamund Vickers, the Union's Democracy & Representation Coordinator or pop by the Union Offices.
