Organising freshers fair, finding drivers for trips, shopping for the trips, attending SRT training sessions, helping with the kit cleaning, helping with the budget request, attending union meetings and delegating out jobs that you can’t do yourself.

Responsible for booking the huts and sorting out keys filling out risk assessments for all the trips, writing minutes for committee meetings, chasing up issues with union, booking minibuses, attend union meetings and picking up the pieces when the president messes up!

Money Money Money! Collecting membership/sportsfed, collecting trip fees at the pub and before each trip, paying the hut fees, keeping a track of all money that goes in and out of the club, writing the budget request, budgeting for the year, seeking external sponsorship, apply for Alumni fund grant.

Tackle Master
Taking responsibility for all of the kit the club owns by renewing kit when necessary, keeping an inventory of what we own, making sure our kit is in a usable condition, organising kit cleaning, CHARGING THE BATTERIES, remembering the tackle hut keys for when the president forgets them!
This coming year we may be moving from the tackle hut (BooHoo) so this may be something the tackle master will have to follow up and organise.

Permit Secretary
Find out what caves people would like to try and obtain permits/leaders for them!

Social Secretary
PARTIES!!! Organising socials throughout the year which cater to both students in Reading and members who live further away. Making a conscious effort to make everyone feel welcome and being a friendly point of contact especially for newbies who are a little shy to speak to the executive committee.

Training officer
Leading or organising SRT training throughout the year and making sure that the training given is consistent.

Web Master
Upkeep / updating of the website, posting up our photos / trip reports. I’m pretty sure they do other things as well but I have no understanding of this – best to speak to Patrick!

Cake Secretary
Possibly the most important job in the club. Supplying us with cake on our trips so that when we get hungry we have something to munch on. You can be as creative as you like, we’re not fussy!
