Students’ Union Bournemouth University (SUBU)
Salary: c£60k to c£65k
Help every student have the best experience at Bournemouth University.
SUBU has built a reputation for being a union which is values led. We believe in empowering people to realise their potential. We know that university can be a challenging time in students’ lives, which is why we support them with compassion and understanding and by delivering advice and guidance. We facilitate student groups and provide a range of activities to help our students relax, make friends and have fun. We also empower them to ‘learn by doing’ and to stretch themselves in other ways alongside their studies. Most of all, through our elected student officers, we advocate on behalf of students to Bournemouth University (BU), stakeholders in the local community and nationally so that they can hear and react to the needs and aspirations of all BU students.
We have a passionate team of staff, elected officers and trustees who are excited by our vision and are determined to give students the best possible experience. Our approach is to work professionally in partnership with BU and we have won NUS awards for our work and have achieved Investors in People and Investors in Diversity quality marks.
We are anything but complacent. We are currently developing a 2019-2023 vision and we will need to build the systems and structures to support the staff and officers to grow, develop and adjust to an ever-changing higher education sector.
As our Chief Executive, you will have the opportunity to build from a strong base, develop a strategic plan and work with an engaged team who want to be able to deliver more benefit to even more students.
To help us deliver our ambitions the Chief Executive will provide the leadership to support and empower both our staff and elected officers to deliver real impact. Continuing to develop our partnership with BU is critical, as is the ability to deliver an engaging strategy and build systems and structures that can enable us to continue to grow and thrive.
Your leadership ability is the primary consideration, although prior experience as a Chief Executive and connections to the student movement or education would be advantageous.
SUBU recognises that its full time workforce is not as diverse as it would like, as a consequence we would welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds.
