Job description

Leeds Trinity Students’ Union is an education charity and multi-award-winning student-led organisation that exists to support students at Leeds Trinity University to reach their potential. 

We are a small Students' Union with a big reputation. We exist to support the 3,500 students at Leeds Trinity University throughout their university experience, helping to create and sustain an environment for students to reach their potential.

Our new General Manager will maintain the collaborative relationship we have with Leeds Trinity University whilst helping to further develop the way the SU engages with diverse student groups. You will be a practical and proactive leader, who is capable of getting things done whilst also possessing the enthusiasm and potential to lead the Union into the future.

The successful candidate will be a great communicator - with the ability to help motivate a small team to deliver great outcomes for students. You will be an excellent coach and mentor, and keen to take on the critical role of supporting and challenging our Elected Officers, empowering them to reach their potential. You will also be able to build and maintain great relationships with a variety of stakeholders, and bring an ambitious approach to enhancing our services.

We believe that the role offers a unique opportunity for someone with great leadership potential, who is motivated to drive innovation in a student-led, vibrant organisation. At LTSU, you really are a name, not a number.  We are proud of the warm, friendly and inclusive environment that our organisation offers and are committed to providing the support required to enable our new General Manager to thrive.

If you have a ‘can do’ attitude, are committed to achieving great outcomes, and are looking for a place to discover your potential, you’ll fit right in.

Our Commitment to Inclusion:

We believe that everyone is unique in their own way and are committed to ensuring our workforce is an inclusive community that reflects the diversity of the world and our members. We positively encourage applications from all individuals irrespective of their gender identity, age, home country, ethnic background, sexuality, religious beliefs or disability.

If you think you have what it takes to be our next General Manager, but don't necessarily meet every point on the person specification, please get in touch. We'd love to have a chat and see if you could help us to achieve great things for the SU and our members.
