Finance

The Finance Director is in charge of looking after the accounts and budgeting for the entire trip. As a limited company, and with the largest budget of any student-run organisation in Oxbridge, it’s a big responsibility. It requires a meticulous eye for detail, careful organisation and, of course, excellent arithmetic ability. Proficiency with Google Sheets/Excel is a must.

College reps

The College Reps Coordinator’s responsibility is primarily to recruit and supervise the 60 or so College Reps and 20 Ambassadors, ensuring that they’re answering as many questions about the trip as they can within their College. The role is really about informing participants and Reps, so excellent people management and communication skills are essential for this role. A good memory for names helps too! They are also in charge of answering any questions that come through the Facebook Page or by email and so need to be organised in responding to messages.


EVENTS

Varsity Trip is about more than just skiing, and a huge proportion of this is down to our memorable opening and closing parties, incredibly varied midweek events, the Varsity Ski Races, and of course, Après. Previous years featured events such as Mountain Meal, Come Dine with VT, House Party and Blues Bop – what can you bring to this year’s trip? In our Events Directors we’re looking for ambition, vision and creativity in coming up with new events as well as excellent organisation and planning skills. You'll also be in charge of organising the historic Varsity Ski races, which are older than the Winter Olympics themselves! An eye for detail and a love of throwing a party are key for this role. Two positions are available for this role

sponsorship and merchandise

Sponsorship and Merchandise Director is a hugely varied role, involving orchestrating Varsity Trip’s superb assortment of merchandise and negotiating with large companies to find great sponsors for the trip – they’ll be able to quickly switch from one thing to the next. Previous sponsors include Tinder, Red Bull, and Bumble, and we can’t see who we work with in 2021! In the past we’ve had merch (or “stash”) ranging from t-shirts to lip balm, snoods to sunglasses – what can you come up with next? Ideally they’ll have experience in communicating with companies, an ability to think on their feet, and an abundance of ideas for the next biggest VT sponsors and stash items.

Marketing

Marketing Director is a hugely varied role, involving running all of the Trip's social media accounts, drafting and publishing regular posts, and advertising all aspects of the Trip. They should have strong writing skills, with an eye for detail (and typos!), an ability to think on their feet, and an abundance of ideas for the next biggest VT social media launch! They’ll work closely with the Media Director to release some of the greatest promo content that Oxbridge has ever seen! Experience running large social media accounts is desired but by no means required.

Media

What would a good Uni Ski Trip be without anything to prove you were there!? The Media Director will be a keen photographer and videographer with experience in all aspects of photographic media; from taking photos, to framing shots, storyboarding and editing. Novel ideas, imagination and skill with any editing software are crucial. A small portfolio may be needed at a later date. Great tech skills are also highly desired, along with experience using Google Suite and Website Design. Web coding experience is useful but by no means necessary.
