Thinking about running for VP Welfare? Here's What You Need To Know

Find out more from Tahmid, our current VP Welfare, about being a Full-Time Officer and all you need to know about the role


Hello, I’m Tahmid and I’m your Vice-President Welfare. I studied aerospace engineering (so technically I'm a rocket scientist...?). 

What led you to campaign for your position?  

I was quite interested in expanding the welfare safety net in various ways for students, especially considering the cost-of living crisis. I’d also been involved in other Students' Union roles as a Student Trustee and as an NUS Delegate.

What's a piece of advice you'd give to someone applying for an Exec position? 

If you’re thinking about applying, write down the pros and cons of running. Think about where the role would fit in your personal and professional development plans but also think about whether you would be able to uphold your responsibilities to the student body. You should also consult those you trust and seek advice on whether you should put yourself forwards for a position. It’s also key to think about what you want to achieve within the role, and this can be within a personal or professional aspect, just make sure that your intention is clear. Always remember that it’s ultimately your decision to make. 

Summarise your Exec experience in 1 sentence 

A chaotic and exciting experience which can be mind-boggling challenging at times, and this role often requires me to make frequent ventures outside of my comfort zone, which I am thankful for (I’m also thankful for all of the great people that I work with – especially the exec team!), also did I mention that I tried to hire a goat for the Study Well petting zoo?
