Candidate for the position of Full-Time Officer

Lindsay Tate (YOUR STAFFS)

YOUR Views. YOUR Union.

My name’s Lindsay and I want to be YOUR full time officer!

I started out at Staffs Uni (LA LA LA) in September 2009 on the Drama, Performance and Theatre Arts Course. I took up Cheerleading and Women’s Rugby League (an unusual combination perhaps!) and from there have held various positions in both committees including: Kit Secretary and Varsity Captain 2011 for Rugby (I was the one that broke my ankle), and Social Secretary and current Chair for the Scarlettes. I have learnt a lot about teamwork, communication and getting the best for our teams through the Union and this is something I feel we could do on a larger scale.

Within the Union I sit on the Student Executive Activities Board which works to get the best for Clubs and Societies. I also work at Ember Lounge, pouring pints and occasionally getting dragged up on the karaoke! From both sides of the Union, as a leader and a student staff member, I have a good understanding of how the Union works to give YOU the best time at University it can. I’ve really enjoyed being involved in all aspects of the Union and now I want to use what I know to represent YOU.

WHY AM I RUNNING?
The Drama Course has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience for me, but without our Students’ Union I do not feel my experience would be complete. I want to continue the work of the Union and further improve all the Students’ Union Venues, Shops and Clubs and Societies to deliver on every level for YOU.

Elect me to be YOUR full time union officer and I will strive to personally make sure YOU get what YOU want from YOUR Students’ Union.

SO, WHAT DO I BELIEVE IN?
BRING BACK TEAMS STAFFS Team Staffs was a great motivation to get involved and be proud of our university, we want to bring this back with inter- hall competitions and Clubs and Societies Takeover nights. Tell us what YOU want Team Staffs to do for YOU and get involved!

STAFFORD Strength lies in numbers and a team effort, why not show Keele who really is the better university by working together? Stafford and Stoke have a lot to offer throughout the day and night, why should students be confined to one campus? Through better transport links we hope to improve access day and night for all students to be free to go where YOU like.

STUDENT ACTIVITES EVENTS Bigger and better events for YOU; ABC Night, Varsity and Awards Night are all great nights but we want to get more involvement and add to this!

EMPLOYMENT We feel that YOUR Union has a responsibility to ensure that once you leave Uni you have had the support you needed to get into a job. We want to create better links with local businesses- compiling a list of Student Friendly employers to help you get employed and make sure you’re treated right whilst you work and study at the same time. We have to face this national problem on a local level and we’ll start by widening the employment opportunities for Students.

WE ARE HERE FOR YOU If there is something YOU want from YOUR union, speak up! Come and talk to YOUR STAFFS about what YOU want! We will always listen and strive to get you what you want from your time at University.
