What is a Student Led Service?
A student led services work in a similar way to our societies – the only difference is the committee roles are appointed rather than elected. Candidates will be interviewed by a panel of Union staff, officers, and SLS members. This is to ensure that technical positions are filled by students with the correct skill level and expertise to enable to SLS to thrive.
Why should I get involved?
Students manage the Student Led Services with support from the Union and University. To allow the services to succeed, we need the support from passionate students.
Having a role in an SLS will also look impressive on your CV. You will develop transferable skills such as leadership, teamwork, organisation and interpersonal skills.

RAG isn’t just about charities – it’s all things fundraising, and they can always help and support you in almost any fundraising venture that takes your fancy; this could be anything from a Fun Run, a project with your Club or Society or maybe even an adventure with an organisation such as Childreach.
Last year, RAG helped the Union raised an amazing £11,426.06, including almost £4,000 from the Netball club and £6,000 from the Rugby club during Movember.
