SHANNON FARMER - activities & development officer

Hi, I'm Shannon, your Activities and Development Officer. I'm here to support and oversee the wide range of student groups and societies we have in the Guild, as well as working with the Jobs, Skills and Volunteering department to make sure you get involved and have the best possible University experience here at Birmingham! Joining societies is great for meeting people who have similar interests to you and can help you gain important skills that look great on your CV. Feel free to come and have a chat, or get in contact if you have any questions about anything from societies to volunteering to part-time jobs!
