Olly Barron, the Warwick Students’ Union (SU) Societies Officer 2020-2021, has chosen to step down from his role early after receiving a permanent job offer.
The news was shared at 8am this morning via the Warwick SU news page.
It said: “Following the offer of a permanent job that was just too good to turn down, the SU Societies Officer (Olly Barron) has decided to end his term in office earlier than planned.”
In a statement, Olly said: “Thank you so much to all of the students and societies I’ve interacted with this year; it’s been so great to see so much enthusiasm and passion for the community in such a difficult year.
“I am sad to say I am leaving Warwick SU as I have secured a permanent position and, in the current climate, this is not something I wish to pass up.
“I wish everyone all the best for the upcoming academic year, and I’m excited to see what Chih-Hsiang will achieve during his term in office next year!”
