This position is currently vacant. We will have 4 General Representative positions at our Autumn 2021 elections!
There are four General Representatives who are elected from the entire student body, and attend each meeting of SRC Council. Essentially a position without portfolio, the role of the General Representative can be extremely varied. It will require liaising primarily with the President, but also with students from any and all disciplines.
General Representatives should be prepared to liaise with Student Officers, Academic Convenors and Sabbatical Officers as required and should be able to judge when a student issue should be referred. General Representatives are also encouraged to help the SRC in the various events the SRC organizes, such as Welfare Week. Becoming a General Representative is often a good way to familiarize yourself with the SRC Council structure.
SRC Committees and Working Groups
The SRC may establish sub committees or working parties to consider certain areas of its work and sometimes consider policy motions. General Representatives may participate in the work of such committees and groups (and can suggest the establishment of new groups or committees).
Council votes in autumn to elect members to sit on a variety of University committees, including Library Committee, Museums and Galleries Committee, Council of Senate, Senate Disciplinary and Student Support Development Committee. Please contact the PA to the Permanent Secretary for a full list of committees.
