Hi, I’m Dan and I am your Vice-President Engagement here at Union Southampton. All us Full Time Officers have been students as well, and just this year I finished a degree in Music.

As VP Engagement, I look after all the fundraising, volunteering and enterprise that happen at the Union. I also oversee the way in which your Union connects with you and the external community. If any of that interests you, then please do drop me a message.

I have a few plans for the year, like looking into what type of night time events the Union hosts, exploring the Union’s volunteering offer and helping RAG to raise as much money as they can for their fantastic charities.

About the Role

The VP Engagement supports student groups to interact with and positively impact the external community. You will take a lead on increasing participation within the student community, both in terms of width and depth of participation. You will also have oversight of Union Southamptons's website, social media and all Union Southampton communications.


  • Lead and support our Charitable activities, Entrepreneurial groups, and Volunteering groups and schemes (RAG, Student Enterprise, and Community Volunteering)
  • Develop positive relationships and networks in the local external community
  • Be responsible for general engagement within the Students' Union (e.g. Fresher's week, the Bunfight
  • Develop, implement and provide oversight for the Union's Communications strategy
