Are you thinking about running for a position in the Leadership race? 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.

This year is already a year like no other! And the Leadership race will be slightly different as a result. As per current rules and regulations we will be running this election online only and therefore as a candidate you will need to think very carefully about how you are going to reach the 16000 Essex students and persuade them to vote for you.

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 (via Zoom obviously) 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 Leadership Race pages about the roles available and the timeline.

Nominations open on Monday 8th February and close on  Monday 22nd February, so that's how long you have to think about it.
