Autumn Elections 2021

We're bringing democracy to the masses at Sheffield Hallam Students' Union! This year, we have more roles up for election than ever before, meaning any student can get involved in their SU, regardless of your experience, skills, or the level of commitment you're ready for.

We've summarised the types of roles available, including the kinds of things you can expect to do in the role, the skills and experience you'll gain, and the time commitment expected. So whether you want to spend all your free time helping students, or if you just want to help for a few hours per semester, there's a role for you!

Once you're ready, select the role you're interested in to be taken to the relevant Nominations page. Remember, you're welcome to withdraw at any point.

Nominations are now closed - check back soon to find out who your candidates in the Autumn Elections 2021 will be!
