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

Full-time paid roles

3 roles available as our Co-Presidents (North, Central and South & West Faculties). These are Full-Time roles, with a salary of £19,700 for the year. To take on one of these roles, you would either take a year out from your studies or start the job immediately after your course finishes. Our Co-Presidents are responsible for running SRUCSA, making change happen and representing the voices of students to SRUC.

Part-time Volunteer roles

Liberation Officers

4 roles available as our Liberation Officers (Women, Black Students, Disabled Students, LGBTQ+). These are Part-Time voluntary roles. Our Liberation Officers make sure that the voices of students who are often under-represented are heard loud and clear by SRUC.

Members of Academic Board

4 roles available as members of Academic Board (Higher Education, Further Education, Postgraduate and Equality Diversity and Inclusion). These are Part-Time voluntary roles. These students attend Academic Board meetings (a committee where all the big decisions about academic matters at SRUC are made) and contribute to make sure that students can feed into this process.

If you are interested in any of these roles, then the first step is to nominate yourself by filling out the form here. The deadline is the end of the day on Friday 26th February 2021.

❓ How Does it All Work?

Interested in any of these roles? Great! This is how you get started:

  1. Students nominate themselves by the end of the day on 26 February 2021.
  2. Candidates tell students why they should vote for them between 1 March and 5 March 2021 in our Campaigning Week.
  3. Students vote for who they want to represent them on Moodle from 9am Monday 8 March to 4pm on 12 March 2021.
  4. Winners will be announced on 15 March! The person with the most votes for each of the roles will be elected.
  5. The new officer team will start on 1 June 2021.
