The Student Radio Association is run entirely by dedicated volunteers who are elected annually. All of the roles are incredibly rewarding and great fun. They also require a significant time commitment, and you will need to give some consideration to this before applying; especially in light of any other commitments that you may have (for instance, running your station or finishing your degree!)

There is a wide range of positions available:

Executive Officers act as directors of the organisation and look after the day-to-day running and oversight of the Association and its’ activities.

Regional Officers are responsible for representing the Student Radio Association, and its members, in a specific geographical region. These Officers are only elected by the members in their own region.

Administrative Officers are, for the most part, tasked with looking after a specific project or activity. Some of the Executive Officers have deputies who fall into this category. This group of officers are usually appointed by the Executive Committee based on a fair application process, rather than elected.
