What are the roles?

We are electing two new Part-time Officers to join our current team. We are electing:

  • International Students’ Part-time Officer
  • Mature Students’ Part-time Officer

Part-time Officers represent their student group on campus and beyond by running inclusive campaigns & events, and hosting student networks. They act as a key contact for students on campus, attending meetings on behalf of their student group both within RUSU and the University. Part-time Officers work together to support each other and ensure every student has a voice on campus.

Am I eligible?

You must fulfil the following criteria to run for the roles:

  • To run for the position of International Students’ Officer, you must identify as an international student.
  • To run for the position of Mature Students’ Officer, you must identify as a mature student.
  • You cannot run for both roles at the same time.

You may need to self-define in order to be eligible for a position.
