Running for a full time position 

The Exec Officers are paid £19,580 a year to work full-time as the leaders of the SU. As the SU is a registered charity, the Exec Officers become a Trustee. Not many grads can claim to be a Trustee of a charity with a turnover of £1.8 million, but this could be you.

The role of a member of the Executive Committee

Being elected and becoming a member of the Executive Committee is a great way to work with other students and staff to make positive change.
Key responsibilities include:
  • Engage with and represent students, attending and supporting all Anglia Ruskin Students’ Union democratic meetings and spending time getting the views and opinions of students
  • Lead a priority campaign to promote change to the benefit of students and support all other campaigns organised by Anglia Ruskin Students’ Union
  • Campaign on issues that affect students institutionally, locally and nationally
Whether it’s a part-time, voluntary Campaign Rep role or a full-time, paid Executive Officer role; all have a seat at Student Council which is the main policy-making body of the Students’ Union. If elected, a term of office will run from July 2016 to July 2017.

Is this right for me? There's plenty of reasons why you should run for a role...

  • Be a leader; create positive change and make a difference
  • Influence and challenge the university
  • It’s a fun, rewarding and once in a lifetime experience
  • To develop both personally and professionally
