Job description

The University of Surrey Students' Union is recruiting for an external trustee to join our Board of Trustees.  This is a voluntary role, with no remuneration, however expenses associated with fulfilling the role will be covered.

We are based on the University of Surrey campus in Guildford.  As a charity and member led body we are focused on ensuring that students receive the very best experience whilst at the University of Surrey and that they are equipped for their futures after they leave us.  We provide support for a diverse student body and ensure that their interests are well-represented within the wider University community and nationally.

This is an exciting time to join our Board as we start to work on a new strategy and welcome a new CEO to the organisation.  We need an individual who really wants to make a difference and is prepared to give us some of their time to help others.  We are also keen to build on the diversity work undertaken by our Union President and to take this forward to every part of the organisation.

The Board of Trustees is ultimately responsible for making the big decisions as to how the organisation is run.  The Board is comprised of elected sabbatical officers, student and external trustees - all of whom bring different types of skills, experience and expertise to the role.

As a voluntary position being a trustee involves attending at least 4 board meetings each year, plus some preparation time before each meeting.  It also includes attending social events and when required, internal committee meetings.  Our trustees are an extremely important part of our governance and play an integral role in the development of the Students' Union.

Ideally the successful candidate will join us in June/July 2022. 

The Students' Union is committed to supporting inclusion and diversity in the workplace and everyone is welcome and supported in their development throughout all stages of their journey with us.  We are proud to be a Mindful Employer and Disability Committed Employer
