What do Student Officers do?

Student officers hold unpaid elected positions, which take a far smaller time commitment than full-time positions. Each position has a specific portfolio (area of responsibility), and it is the responsibility of each officer to promote that portfolio in the activities of the Students' Union. Student officers continue with their studies during their time in office.

The role’s time commitment varies according to how much students wish to commit, as an estimate, it could be anywhere from one to five hours a week. 

There are ten Student Officer roles:

BME Students Officer

Disabled Students Officer

LGBT+ Students Officer

Womens Officer

Post Grad Students Rep

Mature & Part-time Students Rep

International Students Rep

Creative Campus Rep

Aigburth Campus Rep

Sustainability Officer

Who can be a Student Officer?

Any student who will still be a student during the following academic year can put themself forward as a candidate. You must identify as a member of a group to represent them, e.g. only students who define themselves as women can nominate themselves for the Womens Officer role.

All students can vote for the Student Officers.

 

What support do the Part-time Officers get?

Student Officers have an induction programme to help them learn about the Union and their role. There are opportunities for additional training throughout the year.

Student Officers work with Students' Union staff and officers on relevant projects.

Each Student Officer has a Sabbatical Officer and member of staff as a point of contact and coach to help them acheive their manifesto goals.

All the roles have great opportunities to learn and develop skills, work with enthusiastic peers and change life at the University for the better.

We reimburse travel and childcare expenses incurred by our volunteers including elected officers (subject to our policies).
