Which Officer Are You?
You’re happy taking the helm and confident in leading a group of people. Whether it’s representing UoB students to the University, shaping what the Guild’s up to or supporting your fellow Officers, you’re confident in your opinions and willing to stick up for students on the issues that matter the most. You’re pretty keen to get stuck into helping with big events like Welcome Week, too! Whether it’s suiting up and going to university committees, or chatting one on one to students, you’ve got this. Think you can make a real difference? Head over to guildofstudents.com to stand!
With an eye for detail, you strike a hard bargain – but you’re also great at working with other people and coming to a solution that works for everyone! Ranging from big national issues (like rising fees and the TEF) all the way down to sort out reading lists in the new library and working with Student Reps, you’re passionate about all things education. You’re game for working with the University to making sure everyone gets the best out of their academic experience here at Birmingham! Think you can make a real difference? Head over to guildofstudents.com to stand!
Full of energy, a good team player and bursting with a pretty infectious enthusiasm for sport. You can’t wait to get your teeth into the new Sports Centre and you’ve got the legs to be zipping between the Guild and UBSport every day. You’re just as keen to support Sports Clubs as to get new people involved in sport across campus, whether that’s free fitness classes in the Guild or something completely new! Think you can make a real difference? Head over to guildofstudents.com to stand!
Ready to stand up for a group of students that can be ignored on campus, you’re passionate about postgraduates. From improving the academic experience for Masters students to tackling the problems faced by Graduate Teaching Assistants, and from addressing the postgraduate mental health crisis to building our community on campus, you’re happy to get stuck in to make all areas of postgrad life better on campus! Think you can make a real difference? Head over to guildofstudents.com to stand!
A good listener, great with advice and ready to get up and go and get things done, the Resources and Representation Officer is there to make sure every student is represented to the Guild. No two days are the same – you’ll be running Your Ideas, leading on all things green, overseeing Fab n Fresh and helping plan big events like the Grad Ball. Fierce and determined, whether you're into politics, saving the planet or our infamous nightlife, this could be the perfect role for you. Think you can make a real difference? Head over to guildofstudents.com to stand!
Always planning the next thing to do, you’re full of ideas and you’re the glue that keeps your group of friends together. A friendly face, proud of your friends and good at helping other people do their best, you’d be great at working with Residents’ Associations to welcome thousands of new students to campus. You’re not too shabby on planning amazing events either, and can help us make Freshers’ Fest and Snow Ball the best it can be! You’re brave enough to stand up to rogue landlords in Selly and warm enough to make great ties with local residents. Think you can make a real difference? Head over to guildofstudents.com to stand!
Groups, groups, groups! From volunteering to drama to politics, you love each and every one – and you’re ready to throw yourself into them the best they can be. Whether it’s working with group committees to help them run bigger and better events, supporting volunteers to make huge differences to the local community or helping students discover the activities (and people!) that could change their lives, you’ve got this. Good at solving problems, plenty of patience and good chat will see you right! Think you can make a real difference? Head over to guildofstudents.com to stand!
Determined to stand up for people who need a strong voice in their corner, you’re passionate about making a difference to the lives of the people you meet. You’re great at empathising with people difference from yourself, and you’re even better at amplifying their voices. Patient, willing to spend your time talking to people individually and maker of a great cuppa, but not just warm and fuzzy – you’ve got a core of steel and you’re willing to tackle big tough issues, whether that’s mental health, sexual harassment, liberation representation and more. If you think you can improve the wellbeing of everyone on campus, this could be the role for you.
