Part-time Officers (PTOs)
Each year, we elect PTOs to work with the SU alongside their studies to run campaigns relevant to students. This could be to make extenuating circumstances easier, improving services like the library, running events, creating new training for staff on how to better support their students, or even running campaigns nationally with other PTOs across SUs. We are still electing roles this year for BAME, Postgraduate, Women, and Distance Learning students. If you are interested in running and making change for students like you, click here.
Part of Student Council includes our 7 networks which are chaired by PTOs (above). However, they can't do it all! All students who identify with the networks can come along but they also have their own reps. They work with the PTOs to run events and campaigns that positively impact the experiences of those students.
If you would like to volunteer to be a rep or sign-up for Network updates, fill in our short form here.
Equality & Liberation Champions (ELCs)
ELCs help ensure University staff are providing and equal opportunity for all students at Leicester. They also work at liberating students, effectively changing the status quo to create new ways of doing things. The world is forever changing and so are students so these champions lead the way in making sure Leicester reflects what students need now. Click here to check out this year's recruitment timeline.
The Students' Union has a lot of representatives and someone needs to make sure their work is actually positive for students! Scrutiny Committee regularly checks in on part-time and full-time Officers to find out what work they are doing and how it is helping students at Leicester. These roles will be up for election in Term 1 so, click here to find out when nominations open. It's less hours than other roles but vital to ensuring SU democracy is doing right by students.
Each year we hire a student to be the Union Chair. They help facilitate Student Council as well as Scrutiny Committee and other democratic meetings throughout the year. We will add a link here when applications are open but you can register your interest by emailing us and we will be in touch when it opens!
University can be an amazing expereince but also overwhelming, especially in your first year. The Students' Union runs a scheme called Peer Mentoring that pair new students up with a student already at the University. They can be a great point of contact for advice, tips, or signposting you to where you can get more support. It's worth having a someone to check in with as you adjust to this new phase of your life. Click here to sign-up to get a mentor and we will be in touch at the start of the year.
