Taking on the Student Officer role means that you will become a representative for the needs and interests of over 24,000 students here at the University of Liverpool. But as well as that the role has a whole host of benefits from professional development to a brand new set of friends … find out what’s in it for you?

There is no graduate role quite like being part of the Officer Team. Lasting over a full academic year, say goodbye to your student loan and hello to a salary. Combined with working for a company that supports the interests of students right at the heart of campus - there is no better role to undertake.

Have you dreamt of cutting the cost of bus travel, boycotting the NSS or even creating bursaries for postgraduate students? All of these changes began as an idea spearheaded by a Student Officer. The Guild is a student-led organisation; you will lead on improving student life on campus, in the local community or even on a national level. Guided by Liverpool students, our Officer Team has the unique opportunity run campaigns that create a positive impact, fighting for the things that matter. .

No day as a Student Officer is the same; from running campaigns, chairing meetings, networking with academics and partners to public speaking or being invited to exciting events, the experience Student Officers gain is unparalleled.

After completing your term, the skills and experience gained will give your CV a solid gold star!


Becoming a Student Officer means you will be going along to important committees and become a crucial part of the decision-making body at the University of Liverpool. Representing UoL students, you will be there to ensure the needs and opinions of students are heard loud and clear – from the cost of student accommodations, timetabling to the University investments – don’t miss out on being in these highly coveted rooms.


One of the great parts of becoming a Student Officer is the amount of support available to you. The Guild has over 70 full time staff on hand to make sure you have the resources and backing needed to bring your manifesto to life.
