SRUCSA Elections - Be a Student Leader

🦸‍♀️ Job Opportunities in SRUCSA

Each year, our Students’ Association (SRUCSA) elects students to take on a range of leadership roles. These students are elected by the student body in free and fair elections, and it is their remit to champion the student voice, represent the views of students to SRUC and to oversee a range of SRUCSA activities such as the rep system, campaigns, clubs and societies.

✨ The Roles

In the SRUCSA Elections each year, SRUC students elect their Officer Team. The Officer Team run SRUCSA, represent the views of students to SRUC and oversee a range of activities such as the class rep system, campaigns and societies.

In total, there are 3 types of role that need to be elected, with 11 spaces to fill in total. They are:

3 full-time Co-Presidents, one representing each faculty (North, Central, South & West)
4 part-time Liberation Officers (for students identifying as women, disabled, LGBTQ+ and BAME- Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic)
4 part-time Student Members of Academic Board (HE, FE, Postgraduate and EDI)

You can find out more about each role and what they do here.

❓ How Does it All Work?

For every role that is elected, the process is as follows. It's the same for anyone applying for either the Co-Presidents, Liberation Officers or Student Member of Academic Board roles.

  • The first step for anyone interested in these roles is to nominate themselves by filling in this online form by the end of the day on Friday, 1st March 2024. The form asks for your details, and which role you want to apply for.
  • After submitting your nomination, a member of the Elections Team will get in touch with you as soon as possible. We will walk you through the process, make sure you understand the rules of the election, and answer any questions you have. We'll also support you to produce some campaign materials, so you can tell students why they should vote for you.
  • Candidates then have a week off after nominations close to prepare their campaigns. You'll then have between Monday 18th March 2024 and Friday 22nd March 2024 to campaign and ask students to vote for them. During this time, candidates need to make sure they follow the Election Rules. The Elections Team must be impartial, but we are available to support candidates throughout. Students can vote for who they want to represent them.
  • Winners will be announced shortly after. The person with the most votes for each of the roles will be elected. Candidates that are successful you will start their roles on 1st June 2024.
