THE SU LEADERSHIP RACE IS COMING

 

What is
The SU LEadership Race?

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

The seven Sabbatical officer roles are full-time, paid positions. The other positions are part-time, voluntary roles representing different communities of students.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

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

Nominations open next term, for now it's time to start thinking about what skills and experience you have that will help you smash the role, whichever position you apply for.

who can run?

Any current University of Essex student can run, even if you're in your final year. The seven President and VP positions are full-time jobs, so you can't be a sabbatical officer and study at the same time - you'll need to take a year out of studying, or be graduating this July.

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