AboutThe University of Birmingham Guild of Students is a charity and the students’ union for more than 36,000 students. We represent our members to the University and other organisations on the issues that matter to students most. We also exist to help students develop skills outside of study, have fun, meet people and make sure their time at Birmingham is special.
At Birmingham Guild of Students, we are looking for a professional to join our Trustee Board as an External Trustee!
It is an exciting time for the Guild as we move ahead with our new 2022-2027 strategic plan and continue to deliver excellent services for our students. A strong and active Trustee Board is essential to support and guide the organisation’s work.
The Guild welcomes applications from a wide range of backgrounds that are reflective of the full diversity of Birmingham’s community and the West Midlands, in particular we welcome applications from people of colour as we seek to continually increase diversity within our governance structures.
We would encourage candidates with current or previous experience in a membership/charitable organisation; however this is not necessarily a requirement. We would be particularly interested to hear from individuals with experience of Communications, branding, social media, and commercial regulations, however these are not essential. The post of External Trustee is appointed for a period of three years, which can be extended for a second term up to a maximum of six years. This role is not remunerated; however reasonable expenses (travel/accommodation etc) will be reimbursed.
