Chair of Trustee Board
The Students’ Union exists to represent students and works in partnership with the University to provide academic support and co-curricular activities for over 11,000 students. We offer a range of representational, developmental and recreational opportunities with the aim of becoming a leading example of best practice within the student community. The Chair of the Trustee Board works to ensure the Students’ Union is financially secure, has a strong strategic plan in place with its targets being achieved and ensuring the Students’ Union is complying with its Constitution, Charity Law and relevant legislation.

This is both a challenging and exciting time for the Students’ Union as we adjust our services to meet the changing needs of students in response to the global pandemic. The Board works with the elected student officers and senior management to direct and oversee the Students’ Union. Trustees play a valuable part in shaping the strategic direction for our Union, including seeking opportunities to diversify our funding model. We welcome applications with a broad range of experience including financial, marketing, commercial, legal, political, sports development, environmental and strategic development.

The Chair of the Trustee Board (a non-student role) is required to prepare for, attend and Chair 4 Trustee Board meetings per year. In addition, each external Trustee chairs one sub-committee of the Board. In the case of this Trustee appointment, we are looking for applicants also willing to chair the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Steering Group, which is an additional commitment of 4 meetings per year. Currently the Board and its sub-committees are meeting remotely.

Please note this Trustee position is voluntary with expenses reimbursed.
