Your Officers.

Every year the student body elects four Sabbatical Officers to work full-time in the Students' Union for a year.

They work on a range of issues relating to student life, listening to your thoughts and opinions while running campaigns and working with the relevant people and bodies to implement positive policy changes.

Often referred to simply as 'The Sabbs', they are either students who have interrupted their studies to take a year out of their course, or individuals who are undertaking the role in the year after they graduate.

Each officer has a portfolio area that sees them take on responsibility for a different area within the organisation, together deciding its strategic direction. They are here to represent your views, so if you see them around campus, don't be afraid to stop them and say hello!
