We'd love for you to join us at Bedfordshire Students' Union

Beds SU (University of Bedfordshire’s Students’ Union) is a membership led organisation with the mission to empower students to achieve their full potential.

We are currently looking for an enthusiastic and motivated external trustee with a passion for the student movement to join our Board of Trustees. Applications are open to all who feel they can bring skills and expertise to our organisation, however applicants with a financial, commercial or human resources background are of most interest to us. Furthermore, we particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as they are under-represented within Beds SU.

Beds SU is managed by a Chief Executive Officer and directed by five Executive Officers, elected annually. Alongside our Executive Officers, two student trustees and four external trustees make up our Board of Trustees. Our trustees are key to ensuring the Senior Leadership Team are held to account and that organisational objectives are being met. Further to this, we value the support and advice our Board of Trustees offer. 

The Board of Trustees meets four times a year (usually in October, January, April and July) with meetings rotating to a different campus each time. In addition to the main Trustee role, there is an opportunity to further volunteer on our Finance Committee, Appointments & Remuneration Committee, and our Health and Safety Committee.

Interested in being part in a vibrant and fast developing student organisation? Then we would love to hear from you! For further information and an informal conversation please contact us on beds.su@beds.ac.uk
