Student Trustee

Voluntary

We are looking to recruit four students to sit on our Trustee Board alongside the Sabbatical Officers and our external non-student trustees. Anyone who will be a registered student at the University in the 2017/2018 academic year can be considered.

We are looking to recruit students from a broad range of backgrounds, and with a broad range of interests and experiences. If selected, you will be involved in setting and prioritising the Union's strategic aims and objectives; scrutinising our financial performance; ensuring good governance practices; and monitoring how the Union performs in its mission of enhancing students’ lives. This is not a political role and does not make decisions about the political campaigning work of the Union.

The time commitment is attendance at six meetings a year, usually on Wednesday afternoons as well as being prepared to get involved in other events and projects agreed by the Board.

This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of your Students’ Union whilst undergoing an incredible personal development experience.

If you are interested, please fill in an expression of interest by clicking the link below, and we will be in touch with more information. If you would like to discuss the role and its opportunities, please contact Michelle Livesey by emailing m.s.livesey@salford.ac.uk or by phoning 0161 351 5400.
