PRESIDENT
The president is responsible for the entire society and leads the committee. He or
she makes the key decisions and decides the way the society is heading. The
President leads the Leadership Committee made out of Vice Presidents and
Treasurer and is responsible for the smooth running of each team. As head of the
society, he or she is effectively responsible for every decision made by the society.
The president needs to have a clear strategy for the year, interact closely with
sponsors and speakers, as well as the UCL Union. The role of president requires
significant time commitment throughout the entire year.

TREASURER
As one of the key positions in the society, the treasurer, along with the president, is
responsible for the general management of the society with a special focus on
finance. The treasurer is the main liaison between the society and UCLU, which
means it has to deal with both the bureaucracy and the disagreements that pose a
risk to the smooth running of events. In addition, given his or her knowledge and
control of the society's funds, the treasurer must be actively involved in the
planning, organization and execution of all the events that incur expenses.
Consequently, the treasurer bears full responsibility for the correct management of
the society's income throughout his or her entire term of service.

ECONOMICS
Economics is a core part of the EFS. It is the division with one of the most
challenging tasks: inviting the most prominent economists from around the world
and take the subject beyond and above the lecture theatre. It is not an easy task,
but it is hugely rewarding.
This is the role for you if you have a passion for Economics. You will be
exchanging emails with the avant-garde of the field and in many cases you will be
the first one to meet them in person. You will learn loads about the latest
development in Economic Thought, you will become an authority in current affairs,
and you will have to think about innovative ways to transmit your passion for the
subject to your peers.
As a VP you will have in charge a group of executives, who will help you creatively
and operationally in the planning and execution of events. Managing the team
effectively will perhaps be the biggest of your challenges but also one of the most
worthwhile. You will make friends with like-minded people and you greatly enhance
your leadership skills.

!
!
!
!
FINANCE
!
!
!
The Finance team is in charge of holding finance-related events. There are no limits
!
to this – the team is in charge of organizing any event related to finance. This may
!
include topical events such as an Alternative Investment Series (Private Equity,
!
Hedge Funds, Venture Capitalists, Sovereign Wealth Funds…) or the invitation of
!
speakers from Central Banks. While it is not the Finance Team ʼ s role to organize
!
corporate presentations with sponsors, the team can naturally hold innovative
!
financial events with Investment Banks such as Case Studies or Trading Games.
!
Furthermore, the Finance Team will hold the UK Investment Banking Series
!
together with the LSE and Imperial Finance Societies – this will require getting the
!
sponsorship, marketing and executing the most prestigious national competition in
!
Investment Banking and Sales & Trading.
!
!
The Vice President is in charge of the organization and direction of the team as well
!
as the organization and execution of the team. As a Leadership Committee member
!
!
he or she decides where the team is heading in 2013/2014.
!
The two executives work very closely with the VP. As integral parts of the team, they
!
will be in charge of the organization of a series of events: contacting of speakers,
!
liaising with firms and execution and marketing of events.

BUSINESS
!
!
!
As the newest EFS division, the Business division offers room for the most
!
innovative ideas and plans. “Business” is a very large area for which the room of
!
maneuver of the team is equally large. Events with MNCs, Consultancies,
!
Professional Services and Entrepreneurs are all part of the Team. Events include
!
competitions, case studies, office visits and topical events. As with the Finance
!
Team, the main corporate presentations are organized by Client Relations, but the
!
business team organizes innovative events with sponsoring companies.
!
!
The Vice President is responsible for the team by setting goals, creating a plan and
!
delegating responsibilities. Moreover, the VP, together with the executives,
!
organizes and executes weakly events and is the contact point for companies.
!
The two executives share the responsibility of organizing events by contacting
!
companies and speakers. Moreover, they contribute to the teamʼ s goals by creative
!
ideas.

CLIENT RELATIONS
!
!
Client Relations is in charge of the entire service the EFS provides to its corporate
!
sponsors. This includes drawing up a sponsorship proposal, contacting all existing
!
and potential sponsors and agreeing upon sponsorship. The Client Relations team
!
is in charge of securing a budget of at least £50,000. Moreover, the Client Relations
!
team will be in charge to provide up to date information to all sponsors around the
!
year. The team will organize all corporate events for graduate recruitment by the
!
sponsoring companies.
!
!
!
The Vice President is the head of the team and is in charge of setting the goals and
!
directions. The whole team will be contributing to the proposal and contacting
!
companies to pitch sponsorship and organize events throughout the academic year.
!
The team ʼ s structure is very flat, with all team members being exposed to EFS
!
Sponsors.

MARKETING
!
!
The marketing team ʼ s role is the entire image the society gives to the whole student
!
community of UCL. It is one of the most dynamic and diverse roles as well as one
!
with the most responsibility. The Marketing Team promotes the society during the
!
whole year. A crucial role is the marketing during Fresher ʼ s Week and Welcome
!
Fair. Moreover, the team works closely with the events teams to promote the
!
society ʼ s events to the student community.
!
!
The VPʼ s role is general direction of marketing. He or she decides the milestones of
!
how the society will market itself during the year. The Executives of the team assist
!
the VP on all creative and organizational decisions. Moreover, one Executive will be
!
in charge of marketing the events for Economics, Business and Finance teams
!
while the other will be assisting Client Relations and Socials!

!

SOCIALS
!
!
!
As a member of the EFS Social team, you have the opportunity to orchestrate UCLʼ s
!
most exclusive and talked about events throughout the year. Your role will include
!
planning, organising and overseeing projects, varying from international trips to the
!
prestigious Christmas Ball. A vital part of this role is the ability to work coherently
!
and efficiently within a team and using initiative in pressured situations.
!
Furthermore, competent communication is essential to the position as you will
!
collaborate with other members of the committee on a regular basis. Most
!
importantly, you must be friendly, confident and sociable. As the EFSʼ s social
!
representative it is your responsibility to make new members comfortable and an
!
integral part of the society!
!
!
It must be noted that being social secretary of the Economics and Finance society is
!
not the same as having the same role in a different, smaller society. The EFS not
!
only has the largest member base at UCL but also the largest budget. Hence, you
!
will be organising expensive events for hundreds of students, which means there is
!
pressure to produce events of a certain level, which cannot be done half-heartedly.
!
You must have a real desire to contribute to everyone's enjoyment of their time at
!
UCL.

!
includes looking after domains and the EFS website. The website is currently
!
running on WordPress, so experience editing and managing WordPress sites is
!
beneficial as well the use of Photoshop. Moreover, the IT Director will be actively
!
involved with the EFS Smartphone App as well as MyEFS.

The UCLEFS designer is tasked with any design requirements, for print or for online

is given a lot of independence in designing our magazine, The Equilibrium. You will
!
also work with VPs, designing logos, banners, booklets and sponsorship proposals.

Excellent knowledge of design software packages (eg. Photoshop) is essential.
