Job description

External Trustee
Students’ Union, UCL
Unremunerated (expenses paid)  

We have one of the most diverse student communities in the world and want you to help us become the best part of our students’ experience at UCL.

Students’ Union UCL represents 40,000+ students who study at the University College London, and based on our size, location and UCL’s student intake, we believe we are one of the most diverse and vibrant student communities in the world. We operate with a £11m+ T/O and provide a range of services that support our students to achieve things they may never have thought possible. We are inclusive, bold and driven by the opportunity to continue to be the place where more happens.

This year we celebrate our 125th birthday and we are about to launch our next strategic plan, called 125 and Beyond, which clearly puts students at the centre of our thinking. As an External Trustee, you will play a critical role to support and develop effective governance. We are looking for someone who can work alongside other Trustees, the Chief Executive and Union’s Leadership Team to ensure the plans set in 125 and Beyond are delivered and that we stay true to our strategic objectives, and we achieve our ambitious goals.

We are proud to operate with a diverse range of Trustees which includes fellow External Trustees as well as Student and Sabbatical Trustees. In order to be successful in this role and add value to our Trustee Board you will need to be excited by the opportunity to support an inclusive environment that can empower all Trustees to actively contribute to the governance of an £11m+ charity.

We are open to candidates with different backgrounds. In particular we are keen to attract individuals with trustee experience and who have a track record of working at a strategic level in a campaigning and/or membership environment.
