Trustee Board

The Union has a Trustee Board consisting of four Full-time Officers, four students, seven Trustees from outside the Union and University, and one University Trustee. The Full-time Officers become Trustees as part of their paid role at the Union; the others volunteer their time.

Liz Jones (Chair)

Start date: January 2014

I recently retired as the Executive Headteacher of Abbey Manor College in Lewisham, which is a specialist provision for students who have been permanently excluded from school. My career has always been in education. I have a first degree in Physiology and Pharmacology from Aston University, where I was the first woman president of the Students’ Union. Subsequently, I gained a Master’s degree and a Doctorate in Education from the Institute of Education. My thesis focused on Student Voice. I have specific skills and expertise in H.R., leadership and change management and strategic planning. Being a trustee is fascinating and challenging and gives me a unique insight into contemporary Higher Education. Being a trustee is both interesting and challenging and gives me a unique insight into Higher Education.
