SU Officer Roles

1,658 of you made your voices heard, and have voted to change the structure of our Officer team, for the first time in over a decade!

This means that on 22nd February, nominations will open for some Officer positions for the very first time! The positions available in the Full Time SU Officer elections 2021 are:

  • SU President

  • Education Officer

  • Activities & Development Officer

  • Wellbeing & Sports Officer

  • Welfare & Sustainability Officer

  • International & Community Officer

  • Liberation Officer

SU Officers are paid a salary to work full time for one year, making sure that our 30,000 students are heard and have what they need to learn and thrive whilst at University. So if you’re passionate about student welfare, sustainability, the quality of learning and teaching at Sheffield, or any other part of being a Sheffield student, we want to hear from you.

Elections will also take place later in the year for a number of Part Time Officer positions, paid roles which will be held by current students. Look out for more information on these elections later on this semester!

Register your interest in the elections or recommend a friend for a position.
Nominate yourself from Monday 22nd February.
Be the voice of Sheffield students.
