Democratic Procedures Committee

What would I do?

You would be in charge (alongside a few other student volunteers) of our Democratic Structures. The key one of these is Union Council, and you are there to make sure it runs smoothly.

You will also make sure democracy is open and accessible; interpret Union bye laws and are responsible for all Union Elections (including Full-Time Officer, Part-Time Officer and Union Council Officers) and Referendums.

How can I get involved?

We have elections every October, so keep an eye out and prepare for the campaign trail.

Approximately, what is the voluntary commitment required?

It can be changeable week on week, depending on when the next Union Council meeting is or if there are any Elections Happening. Generally, between 3-5 hours a week.

What support is there?

We have a dedicated staff team based in the Students' Union here to support you. We also offer you role specific training and you can also attend further skills development workshops with the Training Team, which directly links to your Accreditation Scheme to reward you for the hard work you do.
