      2018

      President of BioSoc (Biosciences Society)

      University of Birmingham

      Mar 2017 - Mar 2018
      • Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2UR, UK
      • Full Time
      • A voluntary role, I coordinated and grew the BioSoc committee, at the University of Birmingham, whilst liaising with staff and the Guild of Students to ensure smooth running on the admin-side of the society. This year I aimed to increase engagement with more commuting students which was achieved, evident during our finale Easter Ball where commuting students attendance was boosted. I also aimed to create better cohesion between BioSoc and the School of Biosciences so we could work together to create content relevant to the biological sciences students. By the end of the year, we were a regular presence at Student Staff Committees in the department, and I regularly liaised with Bioscience staff. Our membership numbers were boosted by over 15% in one year through more directed initial engagement, focusing on students physically getting to know the committee as their peers through lecture shoutouts and regular socials - as opposed to a distanced relationship solely focused on Facebook. I was able to implement a brand new Family Scheme within the society to allow students of different years groups to engage with each other, creating a network of information sharing and collaboration to support each other. I collaborated with staff and committee to produce an online platform for the scheme to exist on (via Canvas), as well as a Facebook page. The scheme was awarded over £2000 funding through the Alumni Impact Scheme for the next year, allowing next year's scheme to have boosted impact on incoming and existing students.

      • This voluntary role within the committee got the name of BioSoc, at the University of Birmingham, known in the public sphere, advertising our socials and events whilst being the interface between our members on social media and the committee. I coordinated the annual BioSoc careers event by liaising with Careers Network, the committee and a range of speakers, the event was a big success and attended by over 60 people. I initiated our presence on Twitter and enhanced our existing use of Snapchat, successfully increasing the number of views throughout the year.
