Birkbeck Students' Union has a wide range of ways that students can get involved in democracy at Birkbeck! Each year we run elections in both Autumn and Spring terms to determine who will lead the Students' Union (as we're completely student lead!). During this elections students will decide who will be their new part-time elected Student Leaders and Liberation Officers, Student Council Officers and NUS Delegates. If you're interested in running in our elections, and shaping the future of Birkbeck Students' Union, we've provided all the information that you'll need to know to get involved!
Birkbeck Students' Union is run by the Officer Team. They are elected representatives chosen each year by Birkbeck's student body in a cross-campus vote. They are elected to represent students, lead the Students' Union and make positive change for the student experience. The Officer Team is made up of two Student Leaders and five Liberation Officers - Womens' Officer; Disabled Students' Officer; Trans Students' Officer; LGBTQ+ Officer; Black Members Officer - to ensure all Birkbeck student views are reflected in the work we do.
These elected roles are part-time paid positions, and are up for nomination now! Any Birkbeck student is welcome to nominate themselves to run to be one of the Officer Team, which is a great opportunity for personal development, work experience and creating a lasting positive impact at Birkbeck.
Each year Birkbeck Students' Union run our Autumn Elections for students to decide who they would like to represent them on their Student Council and at NUS National Conference as our NUS Delegates. Elected students sit on Student Council and hold the Officer team to account. By sitting on Student Council, you can represent your peers about causes that you're passionate about and influence the work that the Union does by proposing motions and voting on Union policy.
