There are some other core responsibilities that all Full-Time Officers have, including:
- Taking part in Scrutiny Panel meetings
- Helping to lead, promote and engage students with democracy and decision-making in the Guild, including decision-making committees and the All Student Meeting
- Representing students’ academic interests on University College Committees
- Helping to promote and engage students with major Guild events (e.g. Welcome Week, Officer Elections, Autumn Elections, etc)
As a Full-Time Officer, you are also a Trustee of the Guild!
Trustees are part of a Trustee Board, and are governors/directors of a charity - they help to make decisions on a charity’s strategy, development, and spending. So as a Full-Time Officer Trustee of the Guild, you will help to make decisions on these things!
You also work alongside four Student Trustees (students who are recruited to volunteer alongside their studies), six External Trustees (recruited professionals from outside of the Guild who are experienced in a relevant industry [e.g. finance, education] and contribute an outside perspective to the Board), and a University representative (University staff member). The President is the Chair of the Board. More information can be found in in Byelaws 3 & 4 , and more general information about being a Charity Trustee can be found on the Charity Commission website.
