The Role

The Representation and Democracy Manager is responsible for the effective provision and development of support for student representation and democratic systems at the Students’ Association. Leading our committed and enthusiastic Representation and Democracy team which includes specific support for academic representation, welfare and liberation, and wider policy and campaigns on everything from accommodation to sustainability, this role is responsible for ensuring students are at the heart of decision-making on issues that matter to them both within and beyond the Association and the University.
