Nominate yourself

This election is for Part-Time Officer posts. It is great that you are considering nominating yourself for a position! Nominations are open until 12noon Friday 4th May.

Part-Time Officer positions are voluntary, unpaid posts. When you’re thinking about nominating yourself for a position in the SU your first point of call should be to get a full and realistic idea of the post you are considering. To do this why not organise an informal chat with the previous post-holder or a Sabbatical Officer; arrange a meeting by emailing with the name of position you’re nominating for and your availability. You can also find out more about the roles on the officer page or looking at the role descriptions.

Once you’ve nominated yourself make sure you print off your nomination form and bring your deposit to the Democratic Services Office, SUHQ Level 2, before the Nomination Deadline at 12noon Friday 4th May. The office is open between 9am and 4:30pm.

You should attend a Candidate Briefing. The candidate briefing is at 10am on Tuesday 8th May in Meeting Room 2, SUHQ.
If you are not able to attend please email to make alternative arrangements. You can arrange to have a candidate briefing any time from now until the polling opens.

If you have any technical issues in submitting your nomination online please email

Recommend a Friend

Do you have a friend who you think would be perfect for one of the roles up for nomination? You can send an email to with the name of the person you would like to recommend and the position you want to recommend them for. The Democracy Team will then let that person know that a friend (you will remain anonymous) has recommended them for a position and how they can stand if they wish to.

The online manifesto deadline is 2:30pm Friday 4th May
