Don't Let It Be a Barrier

The Students’ Union elections should be open and accessible to everyone and we do everything we can to ensure that’s true.

We know that there are often barriers in place and you might feel that these are stopping you from taking part in the elections or fulfilling the role of a full time officer.

When we say that being an officer is flexible we really mean it.

We know that when you’re a voluntary Officer you must manage the role along side your studies and we always want you to prioritise your academic work over your responsibilities as an officer - even if that means you miss a meeting with us.

As a full time Officer you might have to balance your role with family life, religious life or other commitments. Often candidates want to continue their research or do some bank shifts while in position. We will do everything we can to make this possible. Your working hours will be flexible, and you’ll be able to work remotely when you need to.
