Being RAG’s Marketing Officer has honestly been the best part of my year! From putting on Warwick’s first ever RAG fair, to recruiting our first ever team of fresher reps to coming up with new and creative ways to promote our challenges it’s been a blast! My favourite part of my role has definitely been the opportunity to work with every part of the society. Whether it’s working with Challenge Leaders to make sure everyone on campus knows about their challenge, filming videos to promote RAG Week, or making sure our Social Media is lit!
Over the summer you’ll coordinate with the design officer to make sure you have the biggest and best stall at Fresher’s Fair and then work with the President, Vice-President and exec to put on RAG’s info meeting and fair in week 2! After that you have to make sure that everyone on campus knows about your Challenges, Volunteering opportunities, Events, Raids and Socials!
My day to day responsibilities have been managing our Facebook page, sourcing suppliers for promotional materials, organising the committee to help out with promotion, creating videos for the society and making sure that as many people as possible know about our events!
My highlight this year would either be putting on our first ever RAG fair at the start of the year or organising to have a paralympian come in to talk at our Kilimanjaro info meeting!
If you want to be marketing officer you’ll have to be both creative and organised, but I’d recommend it to anyone!
