Overview

Staffordshire University is looking for people with energy and vision to join our active Board of Governors. The University is seeking to recruit outstanding candidates from the public, private and voluntary sectors with a finance, audit and risk background to serve as Independent Governors.

In this voluntary position, we are particularly interested in strengthening the Board’s skills and expertise in these areas, gained from operating at board and/or executive management level. Applications are particularly welcomed from individuals from groups currently under-represented on the Board, which include disabled, ethnic minority and female applicants.

We are seeking candidates who both share the ambition of, and can make an active contribution to, the University, and understand and are prepared to grasp the challenges and opportunities of working in a sector undergoing transformation.

You will play an active and important role in the life of the University, supporting us in achieving our ambitions, together with safeguarding and enhancing the University’s reputation, performance and sustainability.

The role is not salaried, but travel and similar expenses are reimbursed. Our Governors usually commit the equivalent of around ten days per year to Board business.
