Ailbhe Ní Earráin has the lowdown on what positions are up for grabs in this year’s Spring Elections
It’s that time of year again, as we gear up for the UCLU Spring Elections with nominations for most positions opening today. The list of positions have been revamped to accommodate the new 7.5 sabbatical officer roles. Full-time sabbatical officer roles for the 2015-16 academic year are as follows:
Activities & Events Officer
Black & Minority Ethnic Students’ Officer
Education & Campaigns Officer

Sustainability, Engagement & Operations Officer
Welfare & International Officer
As a result of the failed General Assembly and the following emergency Union Council meeting on Tuesday 20th January, the position of the Institute of Education Students’ Officer will be determined as either part-time or full-time by a referendum which will be taking place between 29th January and 2nd February. Nominations for this role will open on the 3rd of February.
There will also be 6 part-time positions that students can run for:
Community Relations Officer
External Accommodation Officer
Halls Accommodation Representative
Officer for Students with Caring Responsibilities
The two Liberation Officers roles are Disabled Students’ Officer and LGBT+ Officer. The full list of all 24 available positions can be found here.
