The nomination period for this years TLSU Election are now closed!
There’s one full time, paid position – the President. The salary for the year is £24,000. This is a crucial role that brings all of TLSU and the team together. If you’re looking to make a difference for a year, you have some great ideas, love a party or organising stuff (or preferably both!) and want to get paid at the same time – this is the position for you.
There are also five Officer which cover the TLSU Executive Team each covering a different element of the SU. Of course everyone can pitch in and come up with great ideas, but it’s good to have an area to focus on that’s all yours. The officer positions are as follows:
For the Music and Dance officer positions, you could think of yourselves as head student reps, or student course leaders. It’s the Music and Dance Officers job to bring together the views of all the students and try and make our education better. Because, let’s be honest, TL don’t always get it right and how can they improve without our feedback?!
We then have the Events and Welfare Officers. Party planning will be important for you, but so will sitting on a couch having coffee and talking about problems, signposting students-in-need to help and much more.
We then have our new position, Brand and Communications Officer. You will be responsible for everything the Student body and wider see on our socials, working closely with the SU Administrator to ensure brand continuity within TLSU and ensuring everything that goes out is clear, effective, exciting and sticks within our guidelines. It will be your job to ensure everyone knows what’s going on with TLSU. It’s a big one but anyone with a love of social media, graphics or TikTok should definitely go for this one.
All officer positions are critical to the smooth operation of the SU. You’ll liaise with your fellow students to get feedback on how everything is going and report back to the rest of the TLSU. Together, you’ll make a plan to run events, parties, classes and anything you can think of.
Don’t feel like you can commit as much to the SU but still want to be involved? The Sub-Team is perfect for you. The Sub-Team are unelected positions which you can apply for post-election where you can express why you want to help on the SU team and what interests you have and which officer you would like to support. The positions are as follows:
Here is a recap of all the positions up for election:
