Affiliated Orgs & Careers RepEmail MeMore Info
Hi! I’m Niall, a second year law student. I’m also on the United Nations Association’s Committee, and a new convert to iced coffee.
In the JCR I’m your Affiliated Organisations and Careers Rep, and Michaelmas Term (that’s Winter Term) Returning Officer. That means my duties include attending Student Union meetings, liaising between the JCR and the Student Union, liaising with our alumni and other organisations we’re affiliated with, along with running a careers fair every year. As Returning Officer I run the term’s elections, which include much of the committee including my own role. I’m also expected to know a lot about the Standing Orders, as it’s my job to interpret them when it comes to elections.
Social Backgrounds RepEmail MeMore Info
Hi, I’m Charlie, a second year PPEist with a conscience (or a bit of one, anyway). I like to play the violin, go to archery classes, and distract Zakariya – our wonderful president – from the work we should both be doing.
As your social backgrounds rep, I’m here to help you with any concerns you have during your transition into oxford and throughout term time, and I support working class, low income, state schooled, and first-generation students, as well as care leavers and estranged students. As someone who ticks four of those boxes, I’m an understanding student port of call for concerns that may arise due to coming from less represented social backgrounds, and I can support you in finding the right people to contact regarding issues surrounding finance, academic and pastoral support. I’m happy to help you if you fall into any one of these categories, and endeavour to support those who don’t, but are still looking for support in attaining bursaries or other support that falls under the scope of my role (I know that student finance screws us all over sometimes).
Feel free to contact me with any questions, worries or anything else regarding social backgrounds at email@example.com, big or small!
