Are you looking for a role where you will have a meaningful impact? Interested in working at a multi-million pound charity and social enterprise? Then look no further than the 2017 Students’ Union elections. There are over 40 positions you can nominate yourself for including full-time paid positions (salary £24.5K per annum) and part-time voluntary positions. Elected students will have a unique experience that gives them an incredible insight into the workings of the University, Union and commercial services, boosting your CV and enhancing your employability.
Elected students set the direction of the Students’ Union, deciding on student policy and running campaigns and projects to improve the student experience. For a full list of the positions available, click here http://www.qmsu.org/elections/positions.
Becoming an elected Officer at your Students’ Union offers excellent work experience that can be applied to a number of sectors, including the Civil Service, NGOs, the voluntary sector, social enterprise and the commercial sector.
Running your own campaigns and initiatives is a fantastic way to prove your initiative, resourcefulness and creativity to a future employer. You are supported to fulfil your ideas and take responsibility for your own projects, allowing you to stand out from the crowd and develop skills which are highly desirable in today’s competitive jobs market.
Our full-time positions are also paid (an Executive Officer earns a salary of £24500), meaning that unlike many unpaid internships, your hard work and commitment will be financed.
Being part of leading the Students’ Union ensures that you will be at the forefront of making changes at your university and in the Union. Is there something you wish was different at Queen Mary? Or have you seen something positive you thing should expand or continue? This is your chance to make it happen!
Nominations for elections are open until 4pm 15th February. For more information on how to apply, see: www.qmsu.org/elections. For more information on the benefits of working for the Students’ Union, click here.
