Reading University Students' Union is led by five Full-time Officers. They are elected to make sure each and every student gets the most they can out of their time at Reading and loves their student experience.
As a Full-Time Officer you will lead RUSU and provide support, representation, facilities and opportunities for all students. It’s also a paid role, with circa £20,000 salary.
The roles start in June each year. You can start once you have completed your studies or, where applicable, you can take a sabbatical year during your programme. If you are a one-year postgraduate student, we can also look at ways to ensure you can complete your dissertation alongside starting this role.
What's involved in being a Full-time officer?
The five Full-time Officers represent students on a range of issues. From welfare to education, democracy and diversity to all types of student activities, the Full-time Officer team support and empower students at Reading.
They sit on the RUSU Trustee Board and are members of a range of University Committees, ensuring that students’ voices are heard at the highest levels.
So, whichever role you decide to go for you’ll gain a diverse range of experiences. From leading campaigns and influencing change to managing budgets and governing RUSU, the Full-time Officers run the Union to ensure it works for all students.
