How do I find out more about Council and the SRC?
The best way to find out about Council is to read rest of the ‘About SRC’ section of the website, and to speak to current Council Members. Have a look at the rest of the website, too, to find out about each aspect of the SRC’s work. If you have specific questions, you can ask one of the sabbatical officers, whose contact details can be found here.
What does each position entail?
Each position comes with different responsibilities attached to it, and different positions represent different demographics of students. For details about each position, click here.
How much time does a position on Council take up?
To a great extent, how much time you will spend working in the position depends on how much time you are willing to dedicate.
There are particular responsibilities required of all Council Members. There are a minimum of 6, evening Council Meetings every year which you will be expected to attend. Your role also requires you to regularly communicate with the demographic you represent(e.g. clubs and societies, or disabled students): updating them on what’s happening at the SRC, finding out what improvements they would like to see made to the University, and working with Council and the Sabbatical team to achieve this.
It is extremely difficult to give a ball-park figure of how long you will spend performing SRC-related work. On average you may spend around 3 hours per week on this. This will vary depending on what the SRC is working on, and how much commitment you are willing to give.
If you are a Sabbatical officer, and thus in a salaried position, you will Work around 34 hours per week
