The SA Leadership is made up of three types of officer - Senior Functional Officers, Programme Reps and Junior Officers.
Senior Functional Officers
Sr Functional Officers are second-year full-time students. They are elected by the entire student population for the upcoming academic year. There are thirteen functional roles (two of which are not elected by general election). Job specifications for these roles can be found here. All of the Sr Functional Officers are legally directors of LBS SA and as such each has a dual responsibility:
Governance - as directors of LBS SA, each Sr Functional Officer is required to manage the company's resources responsibility, and give direction to the company in order for it to deliver on its mandate.
Functional Execution - each Sr Functional Officer has executive authority to deliver on its function responsibilities.
Junior Functional Officers
Jr Functional Officers are typically first-year full-time students. They are selected by interview by the current SA ExCo. Junior Functional Officer roles are aligned to one of the Sr Functional Officers and support them in delivery of their responsibilities. Role descriptions for Junior Functional Officers can be found here.
Each intake of each degree programme in LBS elects a programme representative to the SA Executive Committee during the existing academic year. Programme reps are responsible for ensuring that the unique voice of their programmes is heard within the SA.
The elections for all SA officers are carried out twice per year, (AUT and SPR terms) each time for a different set of positions.
