Nominations open | Brand new Officer roles for 2020

In the 2019 Spring referendum, Sussex students voted for the Students’ Union to introduce a full-time International Students’ Officer. Based on this vote, and the fact that we can only have six full-time Officers each year, we undertook a review of what the other Officer roles should be alongside the new International Students’ Officer.

This involved 2 student surveys, 10 focus groups and 61 interviews. Informed by our research with Sussex students, the Students' Union Executive Team decided on six new full-time Officer roles and seven part-time Officer roles.

You can nominate yourself now for a role - voting will take place in the Spring, so stay tuned for updates.

  1. International Students’ Officer

  2. Education and Employability Officer
