Ordinary Member (11 places)

Ordinary Member posts are non-portfolio roles within the committee that enable you to take a lead on the issues you are most passionate about within the Communities remit. Whether you have ideas for a new project or campaigns on transport in the city, outreach to community groups and local schools, housing issues, working issues, improving volunteering in the local area – or anything else to do with the local and student community – then get involved!
The Communities Committee acts as the bridge between student and local community. The committee organises campaigns on a range of issues such as housing, transport, workers' rights, student/community engagement and more! In 16/17, the Communities Committee worked on building a schools outreach programme, supported the Cut the Rent campaign in lobbying for cheaper halls, and launched a student workers campaign to support students that work part-time (or even full-time) while they study. Working together with different community groups and trade union branches, the Communities Committee seeks to get students involved in the local community - be that through volunteering, or political organising.
