ELECTIONS NOTICE

It's that time of year again where we ask you to decide who you want to lead Birkbeck Students' Union through our next year of work – and it could even be you. 

Every year we hold the Spring Elections to select the new leaders for the Students’ Union and the winning candidates lead the Students’ Union for the following year, delivering on their manifestos and directing the work within the Union, from the Strategic Vision and operations to events and campaigns.  

Any student enrolled at Birkbeck is eligible to stand for election, and all students are eligible to vote. 

So are you passionate about making change to improve the lives of Birkbeck students? Or do you know someone else who is? You can nominate yourself for any of the following positions:  

 

Student Leader x 2 

- Part-time paid position for 21 hours per week
