Staff Officers

Staff Officers serve as members of the BUCS Advisory Group, working in dedicated areas of the Company’s portfolio. As well as having responsibility for specific areas of the Company’s portfolio, they contribute to the wider policy and strategic direction of BUCS, and are responsible for representing the views of the professional staff across the sector on the various issues that arise.

Student Officers

Student Officers also sit on BUCS Advisory Group and provide input into the internal strategy of BUCS, with particular focus on areas relating to the student sporting experience. They act as the main point of contact for regional student chairs and subsequently represent students’ needs, concerns and aspirations to BUCS. Student Officers also have the opportunity to work within and across the areas of BUCS' business.
