Stand for Elections

Each year, five students are elected to be the voice of Salford students and spend a year being paid to work with us full time to ensure every students love their life at Salford. Could this be you?

Standing for election is a fantastic opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of your fellow students, help the Union and University meet the needs of the student body, meet people and gain transferable skills for life. There's not many students who can say they have been on the trustee board of a million pound organisation before they've graduated, and this is your chance to be one!

If you want a gap year in your studies or are considering a graduate position – we could be the best place to start! There are a host of benefits to becoming a Sabbatical Officer, and plenty that will positively impact your future employability. Developing your leadership, communication and diplomacy skills will prove invaluable to your future careers, as well as lifelong friendships and a connection to Salford you’ll never forget.

Nominations for this amazing opportunity are now open and you can read  more about what it means, what you’ll do and how much you’ll earn on our Elections portal.

REMEMBER: You've only got until midday on the 16th February to nominate yourself! Submit your nomination online
