Are you looking for experience making high-level decisions for a large democratic organisation? Or maybe you want to play an active role in representing thousands of your fellow students? Why not join a Students’ Union committee!

As an SU, we’re are a registered charity with over 38,000 members and a multi-million pound annual turnover. But we’re not some huge, unapproachable corporation making decisions on your behalf – we are a democratic organisation run for students by students. There are loads of ways for you to have your say in what we do and how we operate – one of the most important of these is by joining a committee.

The Board of Trustees oversees all the big decision-making in the SU – that means all the financial decisions, as well as making sure that we are governing fairly and democratically.  A lot of this oversight happens in our Governance Committee, Finance Committee, and Risk and Audit Committee.

We are looking for students to be a part of these committees and help make sure the Union is working as it should. If you’re looking for a job in finance, governance, or risk management, this kind of experience will be really helpful – not to mention look great on your CV! Or maybe you’re passionate about student politics and want a say in how the SU works? These committees put you in a position to really make your voice heard.

To apply, please send a 250-word statement to by Thursday October 31st 2019. Your statement should tell us why you’re interested in the role and what experience you have. Remember to tell us which of the Committees below you'd like to join. If you have any questions, please contact
