WHAT CAN I RUN FOR?
In this election, the Greenwich student population will elect:
- 4 GSU Officers (Paid and full-time)
- 16 Faculty Officers (Voluntary and part-time: 4 per faculty).
You can run for one of the GSU Officer roles no matter what year of study you are in. Please note, the role does have a lot more time commitments when campaigning during the election. If elected, you will need to be able to start your job as GSU Officer on June 15th 2020.
The Faculty Officer role is voluntary and undergone alongside your studies, so you need be continuing your studies for the 2020/2021 academic year.
GSU Officers are four elected students who represent the concerns and views of individuals, groups or the whole student body on issues such as welfare, academic, social and financial.
This is a full-time paid position of £24,725, where if elected, you take a year out of your studies (or afterwards if you run in your final year) from June 2021 to June 2022 to fulfil the role. One of the four officers will be elected as GSU President (the candidate with the most votes).
