There are a variety of roles up for election:
Full-Time Officers – these officers lead KCLSU and sit on the KCLSU Board of Trustees, the highest level of decision-making in the Union, ensuring student views are heard. In this role, you’ll engage with students to build communities and amplify their voices and campaigns, while representing them at the highest levels of the University.
Student Trustees – as a charity, KCLSU needs its trustees. As a trustee you’re responsible for deciding the strategic future of the Union, making important legal and financial decisions. You’ll gain skills in negotiation, risk assessment and budgeting while bringing your lived experience to improve the Union and student life more broadly.
Student Group Committee Members – KCLSU has over 400 student groups, ranging from KCL Rugby to Harry Potter Society. Committee members have a variety of roles, running group activities and managing finances. You’ll be helped along the way by training in the KCLSU Community Leadership Training Course.
Academic Association Committee Members – in this role, you represent your student community within the University, department and KCLSU. You’ll be advocating for your peers, campaigning for academic change and building up your community.
NUS Delegates – represent the KCLSU at the National Union of Students. You’ll discuss and vote on motions to decide NUS policy, hear from NUS officers, and update the King’s community following the NUS conference. At the conference, you will convey King’s students’ views on a national scale.
With all these roles available, there’s something for everyone. Nominate yourself for a role, or get voting!
