Elections in Council

We're looking for students to fill the following council roles. Nominations will close on Tuesday 7th Week at 1pm.

Chair of Council: Chair of Council is elected in 7th Week Council each term to serve for the following term. They are responsible for the running, operation, and pre-planning of the meeting as well as sitting on Steering Committee. Council’s decisions have an impact across all levels of both the University and the Student Union, and as Chair you will be responsible for ensuring that this student decision making body is as effective as it can be. 

Returning Officer: The Returning Officer plays a crucial role in upholding and maintaining Oxford SU’s democratic structures. Throughout the year you will have the main say in all things electoral, from elections in Council, to the Annual Elections in Hilary. You will chair the Elections Committee as well as resolving complaints and disputes within the Annual Elections. This is one of the most crucial student volunteer roles within Oxford SU.

Steering Committee (x2): Steering Committee is comprised of two elected student steering members, the Chair, the President, and the Returning Officer. Steering is the committee tasked with deciding the agenda for the coming Council. They meet the week before to discuss whether submissions should make it to the agenda, whether they need to be amended, or whether they require ‘steering’ to another committee first. Steering are also the group responsible for ensuring that an All Student Consultation is held, if called for.

Scrutiny Committee (x1): Scrutiny are elected at the start of Michaelmas to serve for the entire academic year. It is their task to interview the Sabbatical officers at the end of each term and ensure that they are doing the job they have been elected to do. Scrutiny will craft a report to be delivered to Council in 7th Week of each term.

Once you've nominated, come along to the 7th Week Student Council meeting to talk about why you'd be a good fit.
