Introduction

To compliment the Board’s existing skills, we are looking for a trustee with experience or knowledge in relation to Students’ Unions or Higher Education. Where this experience is desirable it is not essential and the Guild is keen to consider applications from individuals with a range of experience to compliment the skills of the Board, we also welcome applications from first-time trustees.

We are looking for trustees who are able to think strategically, can critically evaluate complex issues, and have the ability to consider all the details. We hope that our new trustee will have a positive impact on the effectiveness of the Board.

It is an exciting time to be involved with the Guild as we develop our Strategic Plan for the next five years. The Board will have a key role in setting, monitoring and evaluating the targets which support the aims and objectives for our plans.

The Board will oversee and lead our executive and staff team to deliver activities and services that fit with and inspire our members.
