If you want to speak to a student to recommend them, but you'd like some prompts on what to tell them about, check out our Officer Election explainer.
Which roles are available?
There are six elected Officer positions at Hallam:
- President: The President leads the Officer team and meets regularly with the University Leadership Team
International Students' Officer: The International Students' Officer represents the interests of the international student community at Sheffield Hallam
Wellbeing, Sport and Physical Activity Officer: The Wellbeing, Sport & Physical Activity Officer works to promote physical and mental wellbeing among Hallam students.
The remaining three roles are perhaps the most University-facing of all the roles, which focus specifically on the student experience within each of the three Colleges. These are:
Business, Technology and Engineering College Officer
Health, Wellbeing and Life Sciences College Officer
Social Sciences and Arts College Officer
The three College Officers are part of the Academic Representation System, working with the Department Reps and Course Reps to advocate for students' academic interests across the College. We think these roles could benefit the most from promotion by staff - if you know somebody who's a great Course Rep, or simply a passionate student, then this might be a great opportunity for them.
