This term we will be recruiting Student Trustees to sit on the Union’s Trustee Board. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain valuable experience in corporate governance which will be extremely helpful to many of you in your future careers.
The Union is a registered charity and the Trustee Board has responsibility for ensuring that the Union upholds the law and follows the guidelines laid down by the Charity Commission. The Trustees hold the Union’s management to account and scrutinise the effectiveness of the Union’s operations as well as reviewing newly passed Union policy.
The Union is going through tremendous changes and working as a Trustee will put you at the heart of decision making over its future.
The Board meets five times a year. The meetings start at 7 pm and last approximately two hours. For any students coming from distance, the Union will pay travel costs and for students who are parents or carers we will pay care costs. We provide full training.
Interested? For more information and to request an application form, email Tony (firstname.lastname@example.org ) or call in to see the Student Officers in Union House.
Please note: the deadline for applications is Friday, 14 March
