Hi! I’m Charlie McKeever and I am one of the two Undercroft Vice Bar Chairmen for 2018/2019. I’ll be working closely with Ollie (VBC) and Charlotte (Undercroft Bar Chair). I am a second year Physics student from Manchester. The VBC’s main roles are generally to do with the staff side of the Undercroft Bar. Ollie and I will work together to hire and train new staff, create shift rotas and organise regular socials for the committee.

My name is Ollie Cool a second year economist, one of the two vice bar chairs for this year. Primarily, our role is supporting the bar chair in executing their plans, resourcing new stock and maintaining standards the Undie strives for. Second to this we’re responsible for the annual Smenergy stash (the College drink) order, creating bar shirts (including nicknames) and organising entertainment in the bar. I was lucky enough to join the committee in my first year and thoroughly enjoyed my time working behind the bar. It’s great to get involved in the best part of college and I would definitely encourage anyone to apply, you won’t regret it!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with either of us at
