Zach Braid was appointed as a Student Trustee of the Student Union in 2019, having initially applied for the position in the summer before the start of their first year.
Zach currently studies at the University as a Student entering their second year on the Primary Education course and previously has worked as an Early Years worker in a Pre-School in the Poole locale. Alongside their studies and their position as a Trustee, Zach also works within the Union as a Bar Assistant, often found behind the bar during the day or on night events such as BOP.
External to Winchester, Zach has given much of his time to working to improve his local community of Poole. Largely by being a member of the Poole Lions, a local group under the Lion's International Charity. Work here includes raising money through charitable events to give back to the community and to offer financial assistance to those who most need it. Additionally, Zach has also volunteered as a CUB leader, running and supporting several engaging activities for young children.
Zach brings a real drive for communication between the Students and Trustees to the board. Zach is often found around the campus and is more than happy to field any questions and listen to any concerns that students would like addressed within the Board.
As part of his responsibility on the board, he sits on the Appointments and Health & Safety sub-committees.
