Development Exec

The Development Exec is responsible for discussing and improving Union Events and Commercial Activities. As a member of the Development Exec you will also be responsible for allocating the SU’s Project Fund and Campaigns Fund throughout the year and helping students explore funding beyond the SU.

The Exec will also work closely with the Environment and Ethics Officers and help them with their priorities for the year as well as formulating and developing campaigns of their own related to environmental issues. In addition the exec will be able to work on its own schemes and campaigns which are created by the exec members themselves. These can relate to various areas development which is a broad term that stretches from accommodation to transport!

This is the Exec students turn to when they have inspiring and incredible ideas that just need a little bit of funding to go a long-way. Any student group can apply for SU Grant funding as long as your project or campaign affects students as students; on campus or in the community.
