His manifesto offers a wider range of events, better job opportunities for graduates, improved wifi and a revamped Joe’s Plus Card.

He said he was “over the moon” and thanked everyone who voted for him.

Alongside Jack, Izzy Lenga will be the Guild’s new Education Officer, despite her predecessor Joe Armer’s best attempts to tie his own tongue in a knot while announcing the results.

Ross Strong gave a speech telling the audience he believed he was the right person for the job that needed to be done – clearly he was right, as he rose above the lack of any challenger to win the position of Welfare Officer.
