All applicants can apply for a maximum of two interviewed positions - please number your applications in order of preferences. While you are welcome to apply for two positions, please only do so if you are certain you have the skills to do both jobs. You need to submit your application (150 words - why you want the position, why you'd be good at it, what experience you have etc.) to the new President (Rowan email@example.com) by Saturday 14th April at 11:59 pm. Interviews will be arranged for the 17th, and candidates will be informed of the decision before the AGM at 8pm.
The positions that will be elected during our AGM are as follows:
- Costumes Officer
- Set and Props Officer
- Marketing Officer
- Engagement Officer
To run for a position during the AGM, please come prepared with a quick speech (2 mins; 3 mins for Marketing Officer) about why you would like to run for the position, what makes you qualified, etc. There will then be some questions (up to 3 mins) from the floor about your suitability for the job. Don't worry, everyone will play nice!
*** Anyone who wishes to run for Marketing Officer: role, please think about how you could market a production of Arthur Miller’s 'The Crucible'. Think about designs for both cover and profile pictures as well as any additional materials you think may be appropriate (sketches are fine but if you have graphic design skills please use them!). Please email this to Rowan (rw95@) along with your expression of interest in the position on Tuesday 17th April by 11.59pm and be prepared to talk about your plan during your speech. ***
Any matriculated student is welcome to run for a position and attend the AGM! So bring your friends along to vote, socialise, and drink some free wine and soft drink alternative.
