Rajan Parmar
At university, we often get caught up in the chaos and stress of university life, whether that be internally or regarding worries in meeting high expectations of ourselves by securing that spring week, internship, placement or grad role. Because of this, we often forget to step back a little and concentrate on everything else around us, particularly ourselves and our wellbeing, especially with COVID-19. As Welfare Officer, I would aim to not only provide a point of contact for all members of the UCL Investment society to discuss and be directed to the services UCL provides but also an opportunity to participate in activities that make you find out more about yourself and discover potential talents and activities you didn’t think you’d enjoy.

As a member of the BAME community aiming for a career in finance, I understand the importance of empowering the minorities and diversity in the world of finance. Therefore, I can guarantee that I will be a passionate, committed, and motivated Welfare Officer for Investment Society.

Greater emphasis on promoting outreach, a smooth transition into a hybrid environment, and a focus on increasing diversity and inclusivity – this is what I hope to accomplish as the Welfare Officer of UCL Investment Society.

My role as a First Year Representative has been the perfect platform for the Welfare Officer position as it has given me an insight into the society as a whole by rotating through divisions. Diversity and inclusion are integral to the growth of this society and can provide new ideas – my proposal is to run events specifically targeted at female students and students from BAME backgrounds. This could be achieved through speaker events for ‘Breaking into the Industry’, specifically for these historically underrepresented students. I want as many people as possible to benefit from what this society has to offer and so by collaborating with the VP of Outreach, we can focus on increasing membership to new heights.

Working 16 hours per week for a tech start-up along with my degree and having led a company of 20 members as the Deputy Managing Director, I believe I have the two main skills required to fulfil this role: time management and teamwork.
