Jess Levy - Representation & resources officer

Hey, I’m Jess and I’m your Representation and Resources Officer! Over the next year I will be doing everything I can to make sure that the Guild represents you and your voice is heard! From the Your Ideas system to even running in an election yourself there are so many ways to get involved and I am here to support you in doing so. I want to ensure that you get the most out of what the Guild offers and, trust me, there is so much to choose from - whether it’s a meal in Street Kitchen or a night out at FAB there is something for everyone to enjoy! Please don’t be a stranger, if you have any questions or issues please come and see me in the Guild or I am only ever just an email away.
