Chief Executive – University of Lincoln Students’ Union – Salary c.50k

  Students don’t simply come to the University of Lincoln as consumers, they actively engage in creating the student experience.  That is the defining ethos. The President of the Students’ Union is on the University’s Executive Board and there is student representation on every University Committee, which is probably why our pace of development has been so dramatic.  Last year the University of Lincoln leapt 24 places in the Times Good University Guide, more than any other university. And the future potential is quite staggering. Lincoln Students’ Union (LSU) itself has had a challenging history.  While that is in the past,  the need to review organisational structure, systems and communication channels  will need to be a priority, as will the need to instil a culture where  people work in a more cohesive and integrated way. We are looking for a dynamic leader, someone with the courage and strength of character to make the changes required to create a high-performing students’ union. To achieve this you are likely to have a style that is honest, open and collaborative.  Your leadership experience in a students’ union that has a strong track record of success will be invaluable. LSU does not have responsibility […]

Head of Finance, Imperial College Union (South Kensington) Salary c£50k

This is no ordinary finance role. Where else could you reshape and reposition a finance function, drive cultural change, develop a team, work with a wide range of stakeholders,  (including some of the brightest young minds and a world class academic institution) and actively contribute to new corporate initiatives? All of this means we need a special person who has a can-do attitude, holistic approach and people-centred management style to make it happen. And it is this, as much as your financial experience that is going to make the difference. There is no question you’ll be an accomplished senior finance professional, equally comfortable in setting strategy as you are rolling your sleeves up and getting involved in day to day operations.  But actually to realise the potential in this role your ability to work with and through people to get things done will unlock the opportunities here. It requires flair, flexibility, gravitas and political acuity. Oh and you need to be down to earth too – no egos allowed! In this role you will reposition finance as an integral business partner in the Union.  With scope to affect the way finance supports varied union activities in a dynamic environment you […]
