Name: Claire Jenkinson

Position: Student Activities Co-Ordintator

How did you get to your current role? After graduating from Manchester University and being heavily involved in training for the Nightline service, I was recommended for the post at the Student's Union.

What are the best and worst aspects of your role? Best aspects are the limitless possibilities for the role in terms of areas I could cover, and definitely the feeling after a good session. Worst aspects are probably relying on technology - OHPs and Powerpoint can both be evil when they want to be!
