Hi there! So I have plans for both the Union website and social media across all three sections of the zone. I chose to specifically not talk about them in my manifesto because I plan on utilising and improving both across every one of my polices. Each point I want to implement relies heavily on communication and social media, and I would integrate both into everything I do. In terms of enterprise, I want to create a dedicated space on the website. The layout of our website is very confusing, and it's difficult to find exactly what you're looking for. By creating dedicated spaces, a student could instantly find the enterprise societies and see the kind of businesses they can get involved in. We have incredible societies running incredible businesses, but it can be difficult to understand exactly who does what, especially because there are so many projects within each group. Through the introduction of skills based volunteering I also aim to utilise the website by ensuring a clear, easy to find space is available to students who want to volunteer, either on a casual or committed basis. I want to make the website as user friendly as possible, and at the moment I don't think it is. In terms of social media, this, again, is something I feel will come out of the introduction of my policies. As part of the introduction of incentives for enterprise societies I want to shout about successes, and this involves every social media platform the Union uses, and the introduction of new ones. Social media is ingrained in the everyday life of our students, and, although steps have been taken this year, there is so much more we can do to engage students. I would use videos, a popular social media trend, to highlight the amazing work our student volunteers are doing, and to create a sense of community around the student body. If you have any further questions or want to talk in more depth about anything do let me know!
