Become a union rep

We are actively seeking new representatives to play a role in our existing structure. Once trained and successfully through your probationary period you will be expected to conscientiously fulfil your chosen role.

Whilst you will be part of a team, you will need to be able to show –

* a degree of commitment and flexibility
* a willingness to learn
* a level of initiative and common sense
* good communication and interpersonal skills
* enthusiasm!

This is a voluntary position, and you will be expected to carry out your existing responsibilities, though reasonable time off to undertake the duties associated with this role will be facilitated and, in agreement with AXA, your workload reduced proportionally. The position offers a unique range of benefits, including formal training, ‘hands on’ experience, mentoring, personal development, increased self confidence, access to a wide range of information, and job satisfaction!

The number of reps has been agreed between AXA and Unite in the July 2007 recognition agreement. Should more members want to be reps than there are positions available then an election would be held.

Where elections are held union representatives are elected for the workplace in accordance with the Unite rulebook managed by their local Unite the Union region office.
