Mathematics: Treasurer

Hey! I’m Hilliam, and I am standing for MathSoc Treasurer. Having enjoyed managing sponsorship for IC Hack 19, which raised over £60,000, I am keen to continue being a helpful asset to the student body through managing the financing of MathSoc societal events like Bar Night and Dinners, and securing the necessary funds to make these events better than ever.

Prior to university, I’ve previously managed the club portfolio of the Trading & Investment Club I founded during Sixth Form, turning a £100 investment into £400 for additional funds for the Sixth Form, and pioneered a school tuck shop as Project Manager with several classmates, raising over £1,200 for charity from just £1 through selling snacks and managing cash flow daily with spreadsheets, all during my A-Level studies.

I understand the formalities needed for dealing with the bureaucracy (and boringness) of forms and invoices, having dealt with tax returns and bookkeeping for my family’s business, to successfully applying for a Tesco Groundworks Grant of £1000 for a local park regeneration project within my neighbourhood.

The promises I pledge to deliver during my time in office will consist of:

1. Creating effective event budgets suited to the scale of MathSoc, without compromising on student experience.
2. Assisting with the acquisition of sponsorship, to ensure that MathSoc events can be financially supported to become bigger and better.
3. Uphold the financial integrity needed for the role of MathSoc Treasurer.
