Exeter Students’ Guild is an exciting, student-led education charity that is dedicated to improving the University experience for Exeter students.

The Guild exists to represent and enhance the experiences of over 21,000 students at the University of Exeter. We share a vision for the future where students are empowered to shape the world around them now, and in their futures. The opportunities and experiences we provide will be life-changing, memorable, and a significant catalyst for whatever our students may do in the future.

Following a period of significant period of change, Exeter Students’ Guild is excited to be recruiting a new Chief Executive who will drive the next stage of the Guild’s transformation, helping to modernise and shape our services into ones that are sector-leading, and that our members, staff and volunteers are proud of.

Job Description

This is an exciting, yet challenging time to join the Guild. We have an ambitious vision to once again become one of the UK's leading students' unions and our new Chief Executive will be responsible for driving the change we need to achieve this.

The successful candidate for this role will have strong coaching, communication and leadership skills, with experience in delivering significant organisational and cultural change. You'll be prepared to commit to the organisation's long-term development, have an ability to build and nurture a culture of support, trust and transparency and bring to the role a solid understanding of developing effective user-led services.

We are looking for an inclusive and transformational leader, who brings to the role a strong understanding of the importance of student voice, inclusion, representation and the need to create a sense of community and belonging for a diverse membership.  Your experience may have been gained within the Higher Education sector, but we are also interested in candidates from other sectors and backgrounds who are motivated to deliver change in a student-led organisation.

This is an incredibly unique opportunity to help reinvent an organisation that has an exciting future ahead. We truly believe that the Students' Guild is full of potential; with all the right ingredients in place, including a dedicated and passionate staff team, a supportive Trustee Board and an excellent relationship with the University of Exeter. We really hope you'll want to join us in unlocking our potential and helping us to build a new future for the Students' Guild.
