President: Jacob Smith (jas298)
I’m Jacob, I’m a 2nd year NatSci, and I’m your JCR president. I’m responsible for generally representing the student body, both to the college and on a more university-wide scale. I vote on your behalf at CUSU council, I sit on the college governing body, and I have regular meetings with senior college leadership. As we’ve all seen, communication between students and college management is absolutely vital, and during my term I want to ensure that this happens transparently and effectively. I coordinate the rest of the JCR committee to ensure that we’re working as well as we can be, and I also help out the committee with their own roles, such as with balloting and freshers week. Please get in touch if you have suggestions, concerns, or ideas for the college or JCR!
Vice President: Sam Riley (sjkr2)
Hi, I’m Sam – a first year Engling! I’m your Vice-President for 2020-20. My job is to assist the President and other members of the JCR committee in any work they’re doing, and to help or direct any student that may want advice on how to make changes in the college through the JCR Committee. I run elections and do a lot of the general organisation and administration for the Committee.
Welfare Officers: Benedict Skinner-Cassidy (bs638), Sarah Royle (smr70)
Hi, we’re Sarah and Ben – your JCR welfare officers! We’re one part of the large support network we have here in college and help to represent issues of student well-being to the college staff. If anything’s bothering you we’re always available for a confidential chat, and we run a range of regular events to help you destress. If you find yourself struggling we’re here to help and are happy to guide you through internal or external support networks, be it applying for UCS counselling, setting up financial aid, or anything else you might need.
Treasurer: Kishen Joshi (hkj30)
Hi, I’m Kishen and I’m your JCR treasurer for 2020-21. In short my job is to organise the finances of the JCR and to make sure that the societies have access to the funds they need. If you’d like to start a new society feel free to drop me a message and I’ll let you know about the procedure and help you set it up! I also sit on the college governing body and finance committee.
Secretary: Matthew Bessant (mrb88)
I’m Matt, a first year Engling, and I’m your JCR Secretary for 2020-2021, which means that I take the minutes at JCR meetings and send out the weekly college listings. This is a resource for all Tit Hall undergraduates to find out about things going on in college – if there’s anything you’d like to include, feel free to drop me a message! I’d like to think that I’m quite an active member of the JCR, and so I’ll usually end up attending most college events, albeit essay permitting! Hopefully this will mean you get to see my face a bit, and I’m not just a mysterious name popping up in your inbox.
