Birmingham City University Students’ Union – Trustees (HR & Marketing/Communications)

Birmingham City University Students’ Union
Role(s): External Trustees (HR & Marketing/Communications)
Salary: Un-remunerated (reasonable expenses paid)

Help us empower students and provide them with the means to shape their own lives.

Our students are unique! They each have their own story to tell about why they chose Birmingham City University, their journey that brought them into higher education, and they all have their own aspirations for their future. Birmingham City University Students’ Union (a £3.7m Charity) is also unique as we strive to represent each and every student and ensure they have the best possible experience at university.

We recognise that while they are here, each student will have their own successes, difficulties to overcome, and an idea of how they want their university experience to be. Our purpose is to empower them to get the most of their university experience and have the best possible start in their careers. We do this by connecting with our students and providing them with a range of engaging opportunities; seeking out their concerns and representing their views; delivering effective and independent advice; providing a range of engaging commercial services and working in close partnership with Birmingham City University.

As we are entering the final year of our current strategic plan, you will have the opportunity to help us achieve our remaining goals as well as help shape our next strategic plan.

This is a rewarding opportunity to support students who are developing as leaders within their communities, and to help empower them to make long-term and strategic decisions that benefit other students in the coming years. You will also support the Chief Executive and staff team to deliver their organisational goals and plans.

We are open to candidates from any background who share our values, however, we are particularly interested in acquiring skills and expertise in Organisational Development and HR & Marketing and/or Communications. These strands form critical parts of the ‘cultural’ and ‘communications’ developmental goals within our current strategic plan.

By joining our board, you will be working with a diverse and engaging group of trustees, be supporting a talented staff team, and empowering individuals often in their first position of leadership.
