Campaign Officers 

Campaign officers are part-time voluntary roles. They are elected by students and work closely with the Exec Officers whilst campaigning on issues relating to their liberation groups or regions.

Part-time Officers ar are also a member of Student Council, the highest student representative body in the Students’ Union, which ensures students have a say over how their Union is run.

WHAT ABOUT STUDENT COUNCIL? 


As well as campaigning, the Part-time Officers also sit on Student Council. Through Student Council, they help to steer the Union in the right direction to enhance the student lifestyle.

  • They make recommendations about how the Students’ Union money is spent throughout the year.
  • Help to promote and suggest Students’ Union activities.
  • Make sure the student voice is being heard in the SU and the University.
  • Make real changes and improvements to the student experience.
  • Hold full time officers to account.
  • Run campaigns and attend national conferences.
  • Get new skills that look excellent on your CV.

Student Council is the main policy making body of the Students’ Union and is responsible for discussing the various issues that affect students, in order to set the Union’s overall political direction. The Council meets a minimum of five times during an academic year to make sure that issues important to students are discussed and, if necessary, acted upon.

Student Council is made up of an elected Chair, the President and Vice Presidents and Campaign Officers, who have a remit for specific campaigns. There are also a number of regional, open positions. Student Council Officers submit Policy Proposals on behalf of the students that they represent, with the aim of making the Union (and sometimes the University) a better place.
