Both the Full-time Officer and Part-time roles are amazing opportunities to gain invaluable experience in a fun and dynamic Students' Union, and make a huge impact on the lives of other students at Hertfordshire. Check the areas below to find out more:


The Full-time Officers are paid roles with a term of a year, starting in June 2017. You will be given extensive training and development opportunities, and have a variety of responsibilities including managing a portfolio of services, running events and campaigns, and representing students to senior University management. These Officers are the head of the Union, deciding what direction we go in and what student issues we focus on.

The Part-time roles are flexible and voluntary, fitting around your studies. You will be given support and training from the Union, and depending on your role could be responsible for managing projects, running eventsand campaigns, or meeting with University management. These roles will look great on your CV and will help you build the skills that employers look for!
