Once a year we elect the part-time (voluntary) and full-time (paid) officers of the Students’ Union – these are the students that lead the union throughout the year, and represent you to the unviersity and beyond. Do you have what it takes to lead your Union? Nominate yourself below today!


Why be an officer?

  • Represent and champion the views and opinions of your school, through Student Council, Student Officer Committee and university meetings.
  • Receive support and training from the Students' Union

  • As a part time officer, you'll be entered into Suffolk Plus, our new employability award, where the more volunteering hours you log the more rewards you receive! 

  • As a full time officer, it will be your full time job to represent students, earning £19,000 a year to do so!


You can find job descriptions for all the roles up for grabs here. 


Can officers change anything?



Student Officer Elections 2021

These elections determine which students lead your Students' Union for the next year, from our full-time President's, to our part-time officers who represent specific groups within the university. Running to be an officer is a great experience, enabling you to develop lots of skills and have some unique experiences, and becoming an officer gives you even more opportunities! Voting for these officers is really important to make sure your voice is heard in how the Union runs!

16 posts are up for election.

Nominations are now closed.

The polls open at 09:00 on Monday 8 March 2021 (in 5 days and 19 hours)

Please log in to see more details.

Please note: Due to the fact that our bye-laws state one of our sabbatical officers attends conference, and NUS requirements that our delegation be gender-balanced, this year the elected delegate position (we receive 2 delegate positions to conference) must self-define as a woman. If you have any questions on this please email
