Job Description

The University of Surrey Students' Union is based in Guildford, Surrey and is a not-for-profit, student-run organisation that represents all students at a local and national level.  Our vision is to enrich the students lives, the community in which they live and the University of Surrey by creating the changes they want and to enable them to achieve their ambitions.

Higher Education and Students' Unions are facing challenging times and having to adapt quickly to new ways of engaging with our members; working remotely and looking to how our organisation will look in the future.  We are looking for a new external trustee to join our Board who can play an important role in improving the student experience.  We need an enthusiastic and motivated individual who can demonstrate a real passion for supporting students and helping the organisation achieve its strategic aims.  The skills we need are experience within the Higher Education sector with particular knowledge of legislation, policy setting and change management.

This is a great opportunity to join a board as we venture into a different way of engaging and working in the forthcoming academic year.  Trustees are initially appointed for a four year period and required to attend Board meetings at least four times per year along with other informal meetings and events.  We are looking for the new trustee to join our board as soon as possible.  Due to the current situation all interviews will be take place remotely.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
