Pay: This is a volunteer role; however, expenses will be paid.



Who are we?

Part business, part charity, part membership body, Warwick Students' Union is a vibrant place to work.

Our talented teams support elected student leaders to make change, improve lives and fulfil potential; we empower them to make all this happen.



Warwick Students' Union is one of more than 550 students' unions across the country.

And with more than 25,000 members, over 250 societies, over 60 sports clubs, hundreds of elected representatives, a huge range of services and a bold strategy, we're one of the most exciting.



What's the job?

The Returning Officer is integral to upholding Democracy at Warwick Students' Union; ensuring our elections are transparent and fair.

The Returning Officer is responsible for approving Spring Election candidates.

You will chair the advisory Adjudication Panel that oversees the complaints process during elections and All Student Meeting campaign periods.

The Returning Officer works closely with the SU's Governance & Influence Team and the Democracy and Development Officer, as well as others on the Adjudication Panel, and will receive staff support during their time in the role.

There can be up to 2 Deputy Returning Officers to support the Returning Officer.

This is an opportunity to gain experience and work for the benefit of all students, ensuring their voice is heard.

Training will be provided.



Why apply?

If you want to oversee the Spring Elections of Warwick SU and help adjudicate our complaints process, then this role is for you! This is an excellent opportunity to be an effective judiciary to a Students' Union and support a vibrant community to be effective decision-makers.



Whoever you are, we'd love to hear from you!
