Are you thinking about running for a position in the SU Leadership Election? Then you are in the right place.

This page is designed to give you the information you need about the process but also to support you during that process.

As a candidate you will need to think very carefully about how you are going to reach the Community of Essex students who can vote for you  and persuade them you are the best person for the job.

First things first though...

You are thinking about it but have not decided... What do you need to know to help you make a decision? We can set up a meeting with staff members or existing officers - and don't worry, this does not commit you to anything and everything will be kept confidential.

There is also plenty of information available on the SU Leadership Election pages about the roles available and the timeline.

Nominations open on 2 October and close on 20th October 2023, so that's how long you have to think about it.
