Our Students’ Union is a busy, active and thriving democratic organisation and we are seeking a Student Trustee to join our Trustee Board to drive its future development.
The Union is a Charity limited by guarantee, and Trustees hold us accountable for what we do to make sure that we are fulfilling all of our aims and objectives, and that our finances are working well to ensure we can deliver all of our services and activities.
Being a Student Trustee is a great way to develop skills for future employability, and make some great contacts inside and outside of University. As a Trustee, you will have an empathy with the work of the Students’ Union, be an effective communicator and decision-maker, and have a commitment to the principles of public life including integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness and honesty. This is a tremendous, genuine development opportunity for a University of Greenwich student that will enhance any CV.
The Trustee Board meets 6 times per year in the evenings, and there will be some email correspondence at other times. If you have any queries about the role, the time commitment required, or simply wish to talk about whether it’s right for you, please email the Chief Executive John Schless at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0208 331 8593.
Please note that unfortunately, you are not eligible to be a Student Trustee if you are also an employee of the SU, or a member of Student Council.
This is a voluntary position, and to apply you will need to have been a registered student at the University of Greenwich for at least one year and to be continuing until at least the end of the 2018/19 academic year.
Our Student Trustee Information Pack has more information and a person specification for the role.
Please send the following by 12pm midday Monday 23rd July to email@example.com.
