Each and every year we are blown away by the selflessness and dedication of our student volunteers, and this year was no exception. They give up their precious time for the benefit of others and the local community.
“I think students bring a lot to the table as employees. They want to use what they’re learning in education to change things for the better and make a difference”
As an organisation dedicated to giving our members opportunities, we not only employed students to work with us, but through training gave them the tools to achieve great things after graduation.
It’s through our elected Exec Officers and our reps on the ground that we continue to be recognised as the representative channel between students, the University of Leeds and any other external bodies.
Each one of our 30,000 members is different - that’s why we love them. We strive to ensure our services, activities and events remain appropriate and accessible to all, and that support is there for everyone when they need it.
By building a fun, high-performance culture, we’ve been able to achieve some truly amazing things this year. This is in no small part thanks to the unique people and personalities that make up our family.
“We continually make improvements to create culture which enables our staff to achieve great results, and it’s fantastic to discover we are rated amongst the best in the UK.”
As part of our strategic plan, we are striving to be sustainable in every way by monitoring and managing our environmental impact. This year we made significant changes to become greener than ever before.
Thank you to the Student Exec, our staff, the University of Leeds, our trustees, committee members, commercial partners, funders, and above all - our members. Without them, we simply wouldn't be here.
