The Officer Team

The Officer team is made up of five officers who are elected to work for you, full-time, for the duration of the academic year, ensuring that the work of the Students’ Union reflects the wishes of the student population at our University. Each officer has set out some of the things that they want to achieve for students in their election manifestos; but they also ensure that they listen to you and make sure your concerns and ideas are addressed throughout the year.


Student Voice Team

The Student Voice Team consists of five permanent staff who are here to support the Officer team as well as ensure that all students' voices on campus are heard. We work on Student Representation, Students' Union Democracy, Students' Union campaigns and Students' Union Social Policy work.
