Here’s a run down of the roles on the HUS.
Academic Affairs & Liaison Officer
The AAL Officer is in charge of liaising between college and students during the year. They are in charge of open days, guiding interviewees to their interviews, and college families.
The Communications Officer maintains the HUS website, sends out the weekly bulletin of news and events around Homerton and is in charge of the noticeboards around college.
The Ents Officers are in charge of organising all the events and bops throughout the year, especially during Freshers’ Week.
The President is a sabbatical role which involves sitting on committees in College and representing the students at the highest level. And of course the President leads the HUS, making sure that everyone else is doing their best for the students.
The Services Officer liaises with College to make sure that catering, accommodation and other services are as good as possible for students, as well as making sure that the HUS and Homerton are as environmentally friendly as possible.
Sponsorship & Careers
The Sponsorship & Careers Officer works hard to get sponsorship for the HUS so that we can provide services and products cheaply/free to students. They also run careers events in Homerton throughout the year, and can advise students on how to get the careers advice they need.
The Sports Officer is the main point of contact for sports captains and society presidents. They work to ensure that all groups are well-supported by the HUS, and work with the Treasurer to distribute funds among teams and societies.
Target & Access Officer
The Target and Access officer aims to prove to students that Homerton/Cambridge are great for people from any background!
The Treasurer’s role is to handle all the money that goes in and out of the HUS and keep an eye on spending to make sure we don’t go over budget!
The Vice-President Internal takes care of the rest of the HUS Exec, making sure they are doing their jobs, enables teambuilding and takes minutes at meetings.
The Vice-President External represents the HUS to CUSU – the Cambridge University Student Union. They also represent us to the wider world in general. Finally, they have a key role in dealing with campaigns at a wider level – representing Homerton students’ interests to the big wide world out there!
The Welfare Officers support students who are having a tough time, and man the welfare phone. They also supply welfare provisions, handing out anything from tampons to STD tests.
