JCR Executives and Officers

President: Lizzie Heywood

Email: jcr-president@sjc.ox.ac.uk

“Hi, I’m Lizzie, I’m a 2nd year Londoner studying Philosophy and Theology, and the JCR President for 2024! My role is multi-faceted, so I’ll be spending my time both as the JCR advocate to the wider college community on matters that I think students care about, and as a facilitator to my brilliant committee members by making sure that the things that they want to do are possible. That means there are few things I can’t help with in some way, and I normally have a pretty good grasp of who to direct you towards if I don’t have the answer. I’m really excited for 2024 and please don’t hesitate to contact me at jcr-president@sjc.ox.ac.uk if you have any questions, problems or suggestions.“

Vice President: Brad Croucher

Email: jcr-vice-president@sjc.ox.ac.uk

“Hey – I’m Brad, studying Experimental Psychology & this year’s JCR Vice President. The two biggest jobs I will undertake are the room/housing ballot and organising freshers’ week; if you have any questions/concerns/suggestions for either of these, please get in touch and I will get back to you as soon as I can. As for literally any other college-related issue, I’m basically a slightly less-important version of Lizzie so feel free to contact me, and I’ll do my best to help you out or direct you towards whoever can!“

I’ll be organising JCR Meetings, updating the constitution and ensuring the smooth operation of the JCR. If you have any questions about how to write a motion for a JCR Meeting or what the constitution says about any specific issues, then I’m your man. I’ll also be working alongside Lizzie and Brad to push for any changes that would improve your student experience here at St John’s.“

Returning Officer: Jan Hubel

Email: jcr-returning@sjc.ox.ac.uk

Hi, I’m Jan (he/him), a second-year History and Economics student and the Returning Officer (commonly called the RO) of our JCR.

As RO, I ensure that all JCR Officers are elected in free and fair elections. To this end, I inform JCR members about upcoming elections, procedures and rules, and organise hustings.

I am independent of the JCR Committee, and therefore a point of contact for any complaints regarding the conduct of Officers or functioning of the JCR.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the JCR constitution or election process. You can reach me via email, or in college anytime!
