Shape your future

Your Students’ Union is run by five full-time elected officers who are chosen by students each year.  The 2015 Students’ Union elections are about to start – this is your chance to lead an active, campaigning and fun organisation, making real and important improvements to the student experience at Salford.  Becoming a Sabbatical Officer will give you the unique opportunity to speak on behalf of nearly 20,000 students, ensuring the University is both challenged and supported to be the best it can be!

There are five positions up for election, and you can find more information about the roles here.

Any student can stand, so if you:

  • are enthusiastic about improving life for Salford students,
  • are passionate about a particular issue which you feel is impacting students,
  • are interested in making positive changes through campaigning and lobbying,
  • have the ability to influence and encourage others to join you,

This role is for you!

Nominations open Monday 2nd February to 4pm on Thursday 19th February

You can suggest a friend to stand for election and they'll receive an anonymous email from us suggesting they run. 

Once nominations have closed, all candidates will be given individual guidance on running their campaigns and will have ongoing support for all aspects of the election period. 

Voting is open from Friday 6th March to Thursday 12th March and is conducted online.


If you are unsure about the roles and would like to speak to someone from the elections team, please email , pop in to the Students’ Union in University House or come to one of the scheduled sessions listed here. 


Shape our future, stand for election!
