Hello! I’m Hannah, this year’s President of Worcester JCR, and my main role is to represent Worcester’s undergraduate student body to college management and the wider university as a whole – so feel free to come and contact me with any ideas or concerns about the wonder that is Worcester and I will make sure that your voices are heard. I’ll chair JCR motion meetings throughout the year, and help the JCR committee to co-ordinate all of the amazing events that make up our yearly calendar. My door is open anytime for suggestions, worries, or just as a general first point of contact if you are unsure of where to turn – don’t ever hesitate to come and find me!
Vice-President and Treasurer
Hey guys! I’m Anne-Marie, JCR Vice-President and Treasurer. As the title suggests, I have two main roles. First off, I’m on hand if Hannah, this year’s amazing President, can’t be around, and I assist in liaising between the JCR and college. I also keep the JCR funds in order, making sure that the various teams have the funds they need at the right time, and that the books are always balanced.
Feel free to email me about any questions, and my door will be open for a chat about anything on your mind once you’re here. I’m excited to meet you all!
Hi! I’m Tom and I’m JCR Secretary. My role involves taking minutes at all JCR motions and committee meetings, as well as meetings we have with college staff (the JCC and JDC). I also send out emails with info about what’s going on in college and at uni, some of which is important, so please do read them even though you will probably get tired of the volume very quickly! Feel free to email me if you have any questions about motions, meetings or events, or if you want me to send something out for you or propose a motion.
Access, Admissions and Careers Rep
Hey! I’m Lucy and I’m your Access, Admissions and Careers rep. One of my main roles is to raise awareness of and participation in Access events – if you are interested in outreach, I will be at the Worcester Freshers’ Fair and you can sign up to the access mailing list. I will be organising careers events, which will include one targeted at those applying for graduate schemes and internships, and hopefully another targeted at CVs and cover letters. My other primary job is recruiting student volunteers to stay during the interview period, and organising social events for the candidates. If you have any questions or would like to get involved with the different Access opportunities that are available, drop me a facebook message/email! Xxx
Female Welfare Rep
Hi, I’m Anne and I’m the female welfare rep, a role which is part of the wonderful welfare team made up of myself, Zach and the peer supporters. Our job is to generally look out for all students’ wellbeing, and to be there as a first port of call for anyone who would like to talk through an issue or problem they’re facing of any size. We’ll be there in Freshers’ Week to help everyone settle in and feel welcome, putting on events such as chilled film and games nights for those who’ve had enough clubbing! Throughout the year we hold peer support drop in sessions and the much loved weekly Tea at 3 – free food and a chance to relax in the JCR. Please feel free to get in contact anytime, including with any pre-Freshers’ Week worries, or at any time throughout the year.
Male Welfare Rep
Hey, I’m Zach, this year’s male welfare rep! I’m here to do all I can to make sure everyone in college gets the most out of their time at Worcester, working with the amazing Anne and the brilliant team of peer supporters to provide support for anyone who wants it, whatever the size of the problem, and to put on welfare events throughout the year. Regular peer support sessions allow a chance for anyone to come along and drop in, whatever you want to talk about, and of course we’re also here any other time you need us, whether you’d like a personal discussion, help navigating the university support services, or want to get in touch with college staff. Oxford can without doubt be a stressful place but can also be such an amazing experience and the welfare team are in your corner whenever you need us to help make sure you get as much out of it as you can!
