Student Trustee

UWTSD Students' Union are looking for two additional Student Trustees to add to our Trustee Board to help guide and oversee the development and performance of our organisation.

We believe in student leadership and we already have two elected student trustees, and four elected sabbatical trustees, but this year (for the first time), we are looking to appoint two additional student trustees to our Board.

The Trustee Board exists to make sure that the Students’ Union is running properly, looking after its resources and people and working for the benefit of students at UWTSD. Student Trustees will join our Board to help guide and shape the work of the organisation, to monitor its performance and legal compliance and help it plan effectively.

The new Student Trustees will bring new ideas and fresh opinions to Board; in return they will receive comprehensive training and will have great experience for their CV and future employment interviews.



What is the time commitment?

There are 4 Board of Trustees meeting per year, 2 Board Development Days, and several sub-committees that you will be asked to attend. Currently these meetings take place online but we hope to hold some meetings in-person.

For information relating to the sub-committees please get in touch with us.



If you are interested in applying please read the role description and the person specification and fill in this online application form. The closing date for applications is Friday 28 May 2021 at 11am.
