At Glasgow Clyde College, it is very important that our students are represented and that the student voice is heard. The Student Association play a huge part in ensuring that this is possible via Class Reps, Ideas Group and Student Elections. 

Student Elections

Every year four students (one full time president and three part time vice presidents) are voted in by the student body and are then paid to work for GCCSA by taking up a role of leading the Student Association and representing its student members and raising the profile of GCCSA.

What you need to know:

Nominations for the Student Officer Elections open on Monday 26th February 2024 and close on Friday 29th March. These roles are filled via an election process rather than a typical interview process however they are paid jobs working specifically within the Student Association at Glasgow Clyde College. If you think that the President or one of our Vice President(s) role could be for you then register your interest now with GCCSA and we will get back in touch. Don’t worry, we will send you lots more information and also arrange a chat so that we can make sure this is right for you.

Why work for us?

  • We have flexible working arrangements. This means you can work while you study and we can plan your working hours to suit you.
  • Versatile role. Due to the nature of this role, no day is the same! One day you might be organising events and working with students and the next you could be holding focus groups at another campus or creating content for our socials!  
  • Earn while you study. Our student officers are employed by the college and paid to work. We have one full time role (student president) and three part time (vice presidents).
  • Enhance your future career prospects. Working for our Student Association is a great opportunity to enhance your work experience, knowledge and gain transferrable skills. Some of our former student officers have gone on to gain permanent roles in other areas of the College, work in events at the University of Glasgow and secured a role for Hewlitt Packard in Barcelona.
