We are excited to welcome new Trustees onto our board to gain different experiences, perspectives and ideas from other sectors to our own.

LSE Students’ Union (LSESU) is a £5.3m not-for-profit organisation for LSE students. Our aim is to help LSE students make the most of the life-changing experiences open to them during their time at university.

We’ve been part of LSE since 1897, and all LSE students automatically become LSESU members when they enrol. Our members join one of the UK’s most active and best Students’ Unions and make it whatever they need it to be.

With over 55% of our students being postgrads and 70% of our students being international, one thing is for certain. There is always something exciting happening.

In recent years, we have been on an incredible journey, enhancing our organisation from top to bottom.

We have reviewed our internal structures and staff teams, opened a new state of the art building with outstanding sports and leisure facilities in the heart of London, and we have radically enhanced the satisfaction and experiences of our members.

We have also changed our governance structures so that we can benefit from the additional experience and expertise that externally appointed Trustees can provide.

We are striving to be a Union for all. Our student demographic has high numbers of international and postgraduate students, which means that much of the research about student experience typically does not relate to us as it’s often focused on undergraduate students.

When we look to enhance our union, we have to be creative, brave and bold to find innovative solutions as many of the sector’s practices are not applicable.

We are excited to welcome new Trustees onto our board to gain different experiences, perspectives and ideas from other sectors to our own.  This diversity will ensure that we continue to make the innovations necessary to deliver an exceptional experience for all our students.

Our Board would benefit from more leadership experience in the following areas; campaigning, communications, finance, HR, governance and commercial development.

We are proud that our students are wonderfully diverse in every sense and come from all areas of the globe. We welcome your application no matter who you are, or where you are based.
