In February, you will elect a new Officer team to run your SU. Nominations open Monday 2nd Jan.
The Officers are the key decision makers within the Students Union and form the leadership team which will take our SU forward next year. Every year current students campaign for one of the 8 elected Officer positions. These Officers decide on the direction of the SU and make a real difference.
You will also be electing 2 Student Trustees, voting on Referenda and electing an Honorary president of the SU!
Any student can run, this might be your chance!
Find out about the positions you could stand for.
You just happen to study at the University with the Number One Students’ Union, as voted in 2018 (and 2017 and 2016 and…). Anywhere else, the opportunity just wouldn’t be quite the same.
As part of the candidate class of 2018 for all roles, you’ll get to know like minded people with the energy and passion to want to stand.
Training and support dedicated to campaigning and everything involved in the election process means that very few people across the country will experience the kind of development opportunities that candidates and elected Officers at University of Sheffield Students' Union will.
£40 is set aside for you to use in your campaign (in line with election rules which are there to ensure fairness).
The other people standing can be a big source of inspiration, support and ideas. Events will keep you in touch with your fellow candidates from start to finish.
The day will include a range of topics designed to help you through the process, from campaigning, to social media and debating.
During voting, daily breakfast sustenance and voting stats will be on hand to fuel your final efforts, whether you choose coffee and croissants or herbal tea and fruit.
Hear from your current SU Officers about what the role is like and what they do from day to day.
