Come join us at University of East London Students' Union

At the University of East London Students’ Union we ensure that every UEL student has an exceptional and diverse University experience that makes them feel valued, supported and empowered to break through any barrier that stands between them and their aspirations. We represent over 12,000 students and are based over 3 campuses.

The Union is governed by a Board of Trustees, comprising of four Full-Time Officer Trustees, a non-Officer Student Trustee and five External Lay Trustees (recruited for their expertise and experience). The Chief Executive and staff work alongside the Full-Time Officer Trustees to run the Union.

We are looking for two exceptional people to join our Trustee Board and work with us to help in delivering the very best for our members. Whilst we welcome applications from all individuals, we would be particularly interested in hearing from individuals with experience in the below areas (in no particular order)

  • HR
  • Marketing and Promotions
  • Business and Commercial development
  • Fundraising
  • Media
  • Public relations

To reflect the diversity of our student community, we would particularly welcome applications from women and anyone from BAME backgrounds.

We meet in person as a board five times a year, including an annual strategy day, as well as opportunities to support sub committees of the board time permitting.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email the Students’ Union President Elham Peserlay on or the Chair of the Board of Trustees Martin Young on
