This election is for Sabbatical Officer positions, Part-Time Officer positions and Faculty Representatives. It is great that you are considering nominating yourself for a position! Please make sure you read the candidate guide.
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 email@example.com 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 in posts.
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 Tuesday 13th February, Week 6. The office is open between 9am and 4:30pm.
You also need to attend a Compulsory Candidate Briefing. For Sabbatical Officer positions the candidate briefing is Friday 16th February at 3pm in MR2, SUHQ. For all other positions the candidate briefing is Thursday 15th February at 5pm in MR2, SUHQ.
If you are not able to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements as if you do not you will receive a fine from your deposit.
If you have any technical issues in submitting your nomination online please email email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
