In the context of the SUelections, campaigning is what candidates do to get votes. However it’s not just handing out leaflets! Successful candidates take time to listen and speak to students, find out what the current issues are that are affecting the student experience and what students would like to see from their new officers.
How will this benefit my future career?
As outlined in ‘What roles are available?’, the role of a Cardiff Met SU Sabbatical Officer is a hugely diverse one, and this means that it gives the successful candidate the opportunity to develop a unique set of skills to use in the future.
These skills include:
• Time management
• Project management
• Public speaking
• Reading and creating high level papers for committee
• Chairing meetings
