Student Union Treasurer
About my role
As Treasure, Sam is in charge of the financial aspect. He works closing with Meg to keep a weekly report of all the finances for the SU and all societies. He also works with the SU Executives to plan and budget for future plans, events and activities. He advises each society of their current balance so that they can effectively strategize for their activities.
This is not my first University; I originally completed a degree in Architectural Technology. Unfortunately, I learned that was not the career path for myself. After that, I worked as a recruiter in the construction industry for two years. Returning back to University was difficult, as all mature students will understand. Having dyslexia, I understand how challenging it can be to study and learn. However, I want to assure you that you came to the right University, where they are willing to help if you are willing to put in the work. Anything I can help with, don’t hesitate to ask.
What I am working on
- Finding affordable accommodation for commuting students who live outside Buckingham. So that they can enjoy their OTM parties without the stress of driving back home.
- Working on a strategy with the IT and the canteen, to incorporate a successful breakfast scheme.
- Working alongside Robin to deliver an efficient strategy for the bike hire system.
