Nominations are open for the Leadership Elections 2020.
The Leadership Elections are an annual democratic exercise in which all students at Imperial College London get to choose their main student leaders for the academic year ahead. You could be the next Union President, one of four Deputy Presidents, or even Felix Editor - there are plenty of opportunities for you to lead change in either a paid, full time position or a part-time voluntary role. If you are a registered student, consider standing. Full time positions are also open to students who are completing their studies this academic year - it's a great developmental opportunity with competitive remuneration and the ability to make a difference. Positions are open to both Undergraduate and Postgraduate students in any year of study. Read on for more details about the roles. Nominations close on 28 February, while voting runs from 9 -12 March.

The Officer Trustees are the leaders of Imperial College Union and are the voice of Imperial students. Elected by the entire student body, the five successful candidates take a full academic year out of their studies or at the end of their studies to work on behalf of their peers. Officer Trustee roles are full-time, paid positions, receiving a salary of more than £30K per year along with a great package of benefits and professional support from Imperial College Union's staff and Trustees.
Other unique roles
These are the other stand-alone positions within our system of student government. One is a full time time paid role, while the other is voluntary. Both are equally important to our strong democratic traditions as a Union.
Roles with multiple positions
These roles have multiple open positions available. There are two Student Trustee positions, nine Liberation & Community Officers, and as many Academic & Wellbeing Departmental Reps as there are departments of College. Each position is collaborative with different roles in our structure, but all are change agents who ensure we are maintaining the highest standards and living our values of Democracy, Inclusivity, Leadership and Partnership.
Positions on Committees
Imperial College Union comprises six Constituent Unions (CUs, for short) and over 350 Clubs, Societies & Projects (CSPs) whose activities and traditions make Imperial a great place for us all to connect and collaborate, start campaigns, share ideas and just have fun. Each CU and CSP is led by a Committee with a President and other key roles that keep them vibrant and functional.
