About | Role Profile |

SUSU (the University of Southampton Students’ Union) is looking for an External Trustee to join its Board of Trustees. Along with the 4 elected Student Trustees and 4 Sabbatical Trustees, our 4 External Trustees form a key part of our governance. You will oversee and support the work of the Chief Executive and Senior Leadership Team at SUSU, ensuring the organisation fulfils its charitable objectives and mission.

No previous experience as a Trustee is required but you must be committed, reliable and have the highest ethical standards as well as relevant professional experience. Please note that this role is not open to current students although we welcome applications from alumni.

We are committed to maintaining the diversity of the Board so are particularly interested to hear from non-male candidates. We would be keen to recruit a finance professional but please do get in touch if you have another professional background that you think is relevant. Meetings are held in person, although remote attendance is possible. The Trustee Board meets 3-4 times a year, and the sub-committees 2-3 times a year. The total time commitment for this role is likely to be 4-5 hours per month.

Please contact the SUSU Chief Executive, Sonia Cottrell, for an informal chat about the role and an applicant pack.
