Have you ever come across a job listing for an entry-level position that requires a degree and experience, and thought to yourself: REALLY? *eye-roll* 

We want you to know, we feel you. 

Missing out on a dream job because you don't have the experience and skills required can be devastating. But what if we told you that there's a graduate job you're already qualified for? You could be our next Student Union President and you can enter a graduate job having completely avoided that heartbreak and get a year's worth of experience under your belt!  

We're the first Union in Scotland to be awarded Student Union of the Year twice, and both wins were the result of driven, passionate, and highly ambitious student leadership.
