Hi. I’m David your Vice President Union Development here at the Students’ Union. This year I’m entering my second term within this role. I got involved with the Students’ Union from my first year studying at the University of Northampton. I was part of a Sports Club, I worked at our Students’ Union bar and I also became a Part Time Officer.

My role as Vice President Union Development encompasses all aspects of what the Students’ Union does. I oversee all of our activities, so sports, societies, volunteer and social enterprise projects. Alongside this I work heavily with our commercial side so looking at the events we put on throughout the year and what products well sell in all of our outlets. I am also enlisted with the task of making sure the way the Students’ Union markets itself is welcoming to accessible for all.

My plans for the year are as follows;

  •          To ensure appropriate facilities are available at Waterside for our sports clubs, societies and volunteering projects.
  •          To make sure any future commercial ideas are student led.
  •          To ensure the Students’ Union rebrand is what the students want.
  •          To find a new kit provider for all of our Sports Clubs.
  •          To create a platform for everyone to be able to have their voice heard within the Students’ Union.
