Voting opens this week in the Guild’s Student Officer Elections.
Students have from today (9am on Monday, 7 March) until the end of the week (2pm on Friday, 11 March) to cast their vote to decide who will become the Student Officer team.
Four students will be elected to lead the Guild in the 2016/17 academic year and be the voice of over 20,000 students. They will lead the Guild, run campaigns to help students on a range of issues, work with volunteers and bring about change where it is needed.
The elections take place every year giving students the opportunity to vote for the person they would like to represent them. Once elected, each Officer fulfils a specific role within the Guild and becomes a Trustee of the organisation.
This year there are 19 hopeful candidates. Click here to view their manifestos.
