·                Attend and participate in Board and Committee meetings and activities, which total 15-20 days a year.

You’ll bring:

·                The ability to work effectively in an environment that is driven by public policy.

If you would like to join the Board of one of the largest universities in the UK, please request a candidate information pack by writing to Jenny Share, Secretary & Registrar, Leeds Beckett University, Old Broadcasting House, City Campus, Leeds, LS2 9EN, or email your request to governance@leedsbeckett.ac.uk

Closing date for applications: 5pm on Friday 26 May 2017.

We aspire to ensure that our Board is fully representative of the diverse community that makes up our university.

All appointments will be based on merit.
