You can view some past members of the exec here.
Current exec members introduce themselves:
President, Daniel Smith
Hi! My name is Dan, and I’m your JCR President. I’m a 2nd year Law student at Exeter College. My role as JCR President is firstly to represent your views to the college, looking at what we can do to make everyone’s lives easier and better. I also help the rest of the JCR exec with their plans and co-ordinate between them, you and college.
I’m excited to look at how we can have greater involvement in the JCR exec and how we maximise our roles to better serve the community.
Have a look around our website – we’ll be updating throughout the year with information for current and prospective students alike.
I’m happy to chat about any questions or problems you have. Do send me a message or an email and I’ll see what I can do to help!
Treasurer, Jack Searle
Hi, I’m Jack Searle, a third-year chemist and Exeter’s current JCR Treasurer.
As Treasurer, my role is two-fold. Primarily, I am there to act as a safe pair of hands in managing the JCR’s accounts. Secondly, I am there to liaise with the college in matters that are financially important to Exeter’s students. This could be anything, from the rise of room rent to the price of coffee in the JCR.
This year, I’ll be looking to continue the great work of previous treasurers in getting the JCR to go paperless. Currently all monetary transactions are done electronically but the reimbursement system is still paper-based. There is also a lot of work to be done in terms of budgeting to make sure we spend within our means, which has emerged as an issue in the past year. This is just a case of creating a culture of prioritised spending, so that we can continue the JCR’s valuable charitable efforts, whilst being able to spend money on individual motions that improve Exeter students’ lives.
Please feel free to email me about anything financially related.
Secretary, Eddie Milne-Brown
Hi! I’m Eddie, and I’m studying English. I’ll be your Secretary next year, and I’m really looking forward to the chance to work for the college. I want to make the college as accessible to everyone as possible, and make sure that everyone knows what’s going on with the JCR.
I’m looking to carry on the great work of secretaries before me to make the JCR run as well as it possibly can, and if you’ve got any issues or queries don’t hesitate to get in touch – I want to hear from you!
Charities, Aniruddha Voruganti

Welfare Officers, Caroline Lear and James Sharples
Hi, I’m James, a second year historian. My primary role is to be someone that any member of college could come to if they needed someone to talk to or if they were having problems. This can occur both in a formal way such as an arranged meet up or just a casual chat when you see me around college. Myself and my female counterpart Caroline will also be organising events that enhance the college community whether this be welfare tea or workshops that we will put on throughout the year.Welfare love!
Hi I’m Caroline, a 2nd-year modern languages student. I hope to be a friendly face around college who you can talk to whenever you have a problem. Another part of my role is providing welfare tea (very important) and things like free contraception and pregnancy tests to the JCR.
Hey! We are Lydia, Conor, Kate and Edie and we are your JCR Entz Reps (Entertainment Officers). Throughout the year we are responsible for organising BOPs, promoting club nights and putting on all the events we can to ensure that college life has something fun for everyone!
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any of us if you have any ideas or events you want to organise/ promote- we would be more than happy to help.
Environment & Ethics, Charlotte Dibb
Hi, I’m Charlotte, a current third year reading chemistry. As Environment and Ethics (E&E) officer, my main role is to promote all things green in and around college. I work with OUSU and NUS to raise awareness on environmental issues, and any events or discussions going on around Oxford.
This year I am focussing primarily on the distance our food travels to get to our plates. Oxfordshire is full of excellent British farms, and I want to ensure Exeter is sourcing as much of our produce as locally as we can. I am also looking at the way we recycle as a college, making it as easy and accessible as I can, and really drive down our carbon footprint!
I have already successfully purchased new drying racks for the college laundry room, meaning less requirement on the not very eco-friendly dryers, and my term hasn’t even started yet!
Any questions or ideas you wish to put forward, please feel free to email me!
Amalgas, Caitlin Rigler
Hi my name is Caitlin, a first year medic, and I’m your amalgas officer for this year! Amalgas refers to the collective sports clubs at Exeter, which certainly have their fair share of success, despite our small size!
My role is to ensure that everyone can pursue college sport to the best of their ability, whether that be by arranging funding, ensuring access to facilities or even facilitating the set up of new clubs! As a hockey player for the university, I’m also in a good position to answer any questions about, and help you get involved with, university level sport.
Sport, whether it be competitive or not, is a great way of dealing with the stresses that inevitably come with Oxford, hence why I’m keen to get as many Exonians involved!
If you’ve got any questions, or suggestions on how I can improve it , don’t hesitate to contact me 🙂
Women’s Officer, Tessa Sandford-Bondi
Hi everybody, I’m Tessa. I’m going into my third year reading history here at Exeter and am so excited for my role as women’s rep. Although it’s a new role (I am only the second person to have taken up the position), it is nonetheless really important and just as valuable as other JCR executive positions. As women’s rep I am available to chat or just listen to whatever concerns people may have. I am predominantly here for women in Exeter but anybody is more than welcome to seek me out for a chat. I am here to listen and offer support to the best of my ability and am always keen for tea and biscuits so please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Feel free to come up to me in college or, alternatively, email me if that is preferable. I am really happy to talk about whatever concerns people may have or even to just have a quick library break with a choco milk if you are in need – I usually am! I will also provide sanitary products for the JCR loos and can pidge people any specific requests if you email me. I would also love to get some more women’s welfare teas going and to hold some discussion groups at some point. I would love to hear any more ideas people may have regarding my position and what we can do to tackle gender issues in college!
Access and Academics Affairs, Naomi Packer
Hi there! I’m Naomi, a first year Lawyer and I’m your Access and Academic Affairs Officer. My role encompasses two main aims, to ensure the students at Exeter are supported academically and that our college is a diverse and welcoming community for both current and future students. I’m in charge of running academic feedback sessions, organising finals forum and I also sit on library committee. I’m also hoping to create an alternative prospectus during my time in this role. Please don’t hesitate to email me if you have any questions, concerns or just fancy a chat – it’d be great to hear from you!
Catering Officer, Noah Alfert
Hellooo! I’m Noah, a 1st year physicist, currently serving as your humble JCR Catering Officer.
My job is to be your go-to for matters concerning food, which are, of course, the most important matters. I represent you to the catering staff, making sure your opinions are heard, and work with them to continually improve both the hall and the services offered within. This means proposing changes to the menu, keeping prices reasonable, suggesting special food events and formals, and striving to balance anything else within this scope.
If you have any ideas, queries, or otherwise, please do drop me a message, and I’ll be happy to talk about it!
Disabilities Rep, Coralie Rocques
Hi! I’m Coralie, an Erasmus English student. As Disabilities Officer, I will make sure that everybody can make the most if their time in Oxford by informing and supporting you on disability – related matters. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, college and uni provisions can make your life and studies easier and anyone with a disability is entitled to them. Don’t hesitate to contact me for any question or concern
Domestic and Accommodation, Avanish Parmessur
Hi, I’m Avanish, an Engineering Fresher and your current Domestic & Accommodation Officer. My role is (i)to ensure that everyone can get all the information and advice needed regarding housing arrangements for the next terms (ii) to minimise if not remove, any factors within the college that impede your comfort, ease, hygiene, or health at Exeter. Since we students have a big list of (important??) stuff to worry about, my role is to write ‘accommodation’ off that list or at least try my best to do so. Also, as promised before being elected, I will try to conduct more talks for various reasons (better communication, efficiency if many people have the same questions etc). Of course, this will depend on the availability of students. Hence, I will try a Doodle poll or some survey to know how often and when really it will be best to conduct any talk. Expect a lot of emails as well. My advice is to have separate folders in your uni mail and set up all the rules to keep your stuff organised.
International Student Rep, Kimberley Chiu
Hey everyone, I’m Ellie, your Music Arts and Drama rep! I am here to facilitate any such events here at Exeter. I am a second-year fine artist and hope to hold many arty events here in college; I look forward to getting to know you all over some pumpkin carving and bauble making sessions. I am also extremely keen to hear from you all about any events you would like to organise or get involved in. Please get in touch and let’s sing, dance and play!
OUSU Rep, Laura Pole
Hi everyone, I’m Laura, a first year historian and your new OUSU rep. My job is to be the liaison between the Student Union and Exeter, so I attend fortnightly meetings in OUSU to represent and vote on behalf of the college. I plan to gage college opinions throughout the year using polls, and will continue with my predecessor’s chocolate incentives for voting! I also want to publicise all the brilliant services and campaigns that OUSU runs as opportunities for Exonians to get involved in.
Feel free to get in touch with me with any questions or ideas you might have
