VP Engagement Dan Varley resigns

He is stepping down due to personal reasons

After it was alleged that the Vice-President of Engagement pulled down another students trousers during a recent night at Stags bar and subsequently being banned from all union bars. Dan Varley has today decided to step down from his role.

He said in a statement:

"After much consideration I have decided to step down from my role as Vice-President Engagement. This hasn’t been an easy decision and is due to personal reasons.

Being a Sabbatical Officer isn’t easy, and having done it for 18 months I can say it is challenging but also incredibly rewarding. Many students don’t think Sabbs do all that much, however I would urge you to find out more and see the work we do to support you as student on a daily basis.

I have done quite a bit during my time here. I helped RAG bid for, win and host a national fundraising conference, planned and hosted the most well attended Excellence in Volunteering Awards (EVAs) of the past few years and have been heavily involved as the lead Sabb in hosting two successful Freshers’ Fortnights. I could not be prouder of the work I have achieved.

I want to thank everyone I’ve worked with, in particular my Student Leaders and volunteers, the incredible and hardworking Union staff and the two Sabb teams I’ve been a part of. Youall make this job a joy to do and I hope you continue all the good work you are doing for students!"

The VP of engagement had been working as a sabbatical officer for 18 months and ran many student engagement programmes including the notorious Union Snapchat.

The Students Union have also said that they'll give no further comment regaring the resignation.
