By now you’re probably well aware of who are your full-time officers, but did you know the SU has a team of dedicated part-time officers and Student Voice Representatives? In order for you to get to know them better, we’re launching a new series of articles and post, dedicated to your part-time representatives!
For the second edition of this series, we sat down with Rob Bailey, the current Chair of Student Council! Below is a quick introduction to Rob and what he hopes to achieve in this position.
What course/year of study you are on?
I’m currently in my 3rd?year of a history degree.
What is your current role within the SU?
I’m the Chair of the Student Council!
Have you held any previous roles within the SU, if so, what?
Yes, I have! I was the Student Voice Representative for FBCI last year!
Why did you become an officer?
Last year I became an SVR as part of my work placement and enjoyed the role that I decided to run for Chair of student council to help students in a different capacity. I believe that as a mature student I am in a unique place to offer a different perspective on university life.
What are you most looking forward to working on this year?
The AGM and holding council meetings.
Fun facts and my likes out of university:?
I am very accident prone and have broken over 40 bones.
I have cooked for many celebrities including Sir Alex Ferguson, David Beckham, Sir John Major (when he was Prime Minister) Eve Pollard and Jeffery Archer to name a few.
I once knocked David Hasselhoff down a flight of stairs, while not looking where I was walking.
I am colour blind which means my wife picks my clothes for me as I cannot colour coordinate.
