What is
The SU LEadership Race?

Twice a year Essex students vote for who we want to lead the SU for the next year.

In this leadership race, there are several part time, voluntary roles avaliable, that you can do alongside your studies.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

This is a voluntary role, but there isn't an interview. You'll need to campaign and convince other Essex students that you're the best person for the role.

You'll want to start thinking about what skills and experience you have that will help you smash the role, whichever position you want to run for.

who can run?

Any current University of Essex student can run, even if you're in your final year. 

Part-time officer roles are volunteer roles that run alongside your studies. These positions are only open to current students. Some part-time positions will require you to self-define before you can stand.

Student Parliament roles and community committee roles are also volunteer roles, which you can do alongside your studies. These roles are for students who define as members of particular communities. There's loads to choose from, but you can only run for one position- so pick carefully!
