The University of Stirling Students’ Union mission is to ‘Make Students’ Lives Better’. We operate independently from the University and are an unincorporated Scottish charity. This is an exciting time to be a trustee at the University of Stirling Students’ Union. We are developing our new strategic plan for 2018-21 which is due to launch in June 2018. The Board of Trustees is responsible for setting the vision, mission and values of the organisation and for the development of a long-term strategy and to approve and monitor plans to deliver the strategy. 

About our Board

Our Trustee Board structure is 4 Sabbatical Officers (elected) 3 Student Trustees (appointed) and 4 External Trustees (appointed). The board meets five times a year with expenses remunerated. The term of office is three years with a further three years with agreement from the board.

Who are we looking for?

We are currently looking to appoint an external Trustee with excellent communication and strategic people skills and /or specialist knowledge areas in digital, marketing and or media.

Previous experience of being a trustee isn't essential as we will make sure you receive the training and induction you need to hit the ground running. What is essential is the desire to want to help the next generation of Stirling graduates by helping the Union to ‘Make Students Lives Better’
