Brighton Students' Union elections - nominate yourself today

Brighton SU Elections: Nominations open today!

Nominations have now opened in the Brighton Students’ Union elections. This is your chance to lead Brighton Students’ Union and make student life better, within the University, locally, and nationally.

We have 4 roles available – please click the job title to see the full description for each:

This is a fantastic job opportunity for any student finishing their course this year, or you can take a year out of your studies for the role. The only qualification you need is to be a registered University of Brighton student – full-time, part-time, international, postgraduate or a mature student, anyone can stand in the election.

What’s in it for you?

These are four, full-time, paid roles. You will be paid a salary of £21,501,60 and receive 30 days holiday, as well as a host of other benefits including travel loans, cycle to work schemes and childcare vouchers.

What do I actually have to do?

As an officer, no two days are ever the same. One day you might be speaking at a conference about the experiences of students at Brighton, the next you could be attending university committees to give feedback on how to improve the University from a student perspective, or you might be working with SU staff on projects that enhance the student experience.

This is not your normal 9 to 5 job – you’ll be going to student events, conferences and attending open days. Some of this will take place on evenings and weekends, but you’ll only ever work 37.5 hours a week.

How do I apply?

To get the role, you will need to stand in, and win, an election. Nominate yourself via the BSU website by completing your nomination form by Friday 18 March 2022. On this page, you will also find more information about the election and a set of FAQs.
