WHAT AM I VOTING FOR?

 

In this election, the Greenwich student population will elect:
- 4 GSU Officers (Paid and full-time)
- NUS Delegate (Voluntary).

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 2021.

If elected as an NUS Conference Delegate, you get to represent the views of Greenwich Students at the National Conference in 2021.


GSU Officers
 

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).
