Why join?

You will get the chance of working with the Activities Officer and societies on their campaigns and activities by providing media, events, and engagement support. As a society executive member, you will have the opportunity to work with the engagement department to deliver their annual calendar of events (including the annual Societies Festival!).

Not only will you improve you existing skills, but you will also gain a whole bunch on new ones. Each role also comes with its own Gold Leadership Award and Leadership Badge Pathway. And if that wasn’t enough, you will be paired with a member of our team which bring a whole host of one-to-one support and learning opportunity.

What will you be working on?

Every month the societies executive meets and votes on:

  • Society of the month
  • Funding applications
  • New society applications

During the first semester we will be focusing on expanding the activities calendar for more of our students. This will include Black history month, World Mental Health Day, Inter-faith week, and our celebrations for the Holiday season.

As a society executive member, you can also work on projects you are passionate about too!
