It’s time to stand: Student Officer nominations are open

Looking for a top job? Nominations are officially open for the next Student Officers at Liverpool Guild of Students.

The Guild is on the look-out for the next four-strong team who will lead the organisation and be the voice of over 24,000 students.

The successful candidates will work at Liverpool Guild of Students for one year, earn around £19k, and make a big difference to students at the University of Liverpool.

There are no job applications or interviews for these posts – they are filled each year through student votes in the Student Officer Elections. All you have to do is nominate yourself and campaign your way to becoming Student Officer.

The role involves University Committee meetings, planning and running campaigns, supporting activities on campus, and of course representing the students.

The Guild will be running free workshops to help interested students learn more about the election process, and what being a Student Officer is all about. Some sessions are reserved for students groups that are either underrepresented in the current officer team or a minority group within the student body, and are there to provide specific content to ensure that everyone has the same fair chance to be elected. You can find out more information about these workshops here.


Nominate yourself via the SO Elections website here (make sure you’re signed into the website first).

Nominations are open until 5pm on Friday 9th February 2018. Voting in the Student Officer Elections will take place from Monday 5th until Friday 9th March 2018.
