Vice President (Union Development) Blog- Ryan is your main representative on all student union activities. For more information on his work this year click this link.
'It's great to be given the opportunity to have another year in the role as vice president union development. I couldn't be more excited for the year ahead. Over the summer I have been working on a number of things ready for when you (students) get back on campus. I have been doing a lot of work around the 'development award' which is essentially a revamp of tiered funding model... it is designed to help and develop all of our groups across the year and lead by example for being an 'excellent' committee.
I have also put a lot of time in 'hyping' up freshers, sports and societies over the summer within the student groups and new starters. I have been sharing the groups content across all social media platforms in addition to helping with engagement and sign ups for all of our groups.
I have also hosted the VIP Days with some of the other sabbatical officers where we got the honour of meeting some of the new students and letting them know what we do at the students union, and how fun we are .
However, the most exciting thing that I have been doing (and hardest) is sorting out all the freshers programme with regards to ensuring marketing and promotion is on point and that there is a diverse amount of events for all students, so there is something for everyone.
The year ahead is going to be a good one, I can feel it and I'm so excited to push all of our sports, societies and events throughout the year!!
If you need anything else regarding Sports, Societies, Events or literally anything you can find me on Facebook (Ryan Bradshaw VPUD) or catch me in the Students' Union on campus... or at the Platform club!!
If we haven't met already, grab me for a coffee or a bevvy.'
