University of Bedfordshire Students Union seeks new board members – legal expertise sought
Beds SU, the student-led charity at the University of Bedfordshire, is seeking experienced, committed external trustees to add to the diversity of its Board. New trustees with Income Generation and/or Business Development, Accounting, Legal and/or IT, digital and marketing experience are sought.
Students at our university embark on life-changing journeys and we seek trustees to help us further students’ interests and improve their lives as students.
Beds SU is the representative body for all students at the University of Bedfordshire. We represent an incredibly diverse student body, with students from all backgrounds and from across the globe at multiple campuses across the UK, and we empower students to achieve their full potential.
Bedfordshire is a university where students’ journeys resource them to make deep changes to their lives, raise aspirations and open opportunities. Serving as a trustee can be an incredibly valuable way of making a contribution to wider society, not least the Bedfordshire student body.
You’ll join Beds SU at an exciting time as we launch our new strategic plan. As trustee you will support organisational renewal at a strategic level, and bring your seasoned expertise and experience to achieving the charity’s objectives.
The Board would benefit from a diversity of backgrounds, both in person and in profession. We would benefit from new trustees who bring commercial and/or business experience (e.g. sales, planning etc.); financial, legal and/or marketing experience would also be beneficial. In particular, we welcome applications from those from Black, Asian and an ethnic minority backgrounds as well as women, as they are under-represented within the Union at this level.
Beds SU trustees ordinarily meet four times per year; and trustees are asked to attend up to 2 further training or ‘away’ days. Trustees receive induction and the Board is supported by staff. Reasonable expenses are paid.
