Parker is a masters student currently studying Global Media and Culture. After mistakenly moving to Newcastle-under-Lyme instead of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, he met the awesome and friendly staff at the KPA, and decided to run for the VP role. Parker is enthusiastic about making the KPA into a force for change at Keele University, that is able to challenge and support the university on their shortcomings.
Fun Fact: Parker knows how to speak extremely limited German.
The Vice-President role is a paid, full-time position. The primary focus is to improve the postgraduate experience whether that's through lobbying the university for policy change, providing personal support or organising events to name a few aspects. The variability of the role is a strength as it allows the post-holder to be flexible with what they spend their time on.
