Student Trustee

The Students’ Union at Bournemouth University (SUBU) is looking for two student trustees to join its trustee board, for a term of up to two years.

SUBU is an independent charity, representing around 19,000 Bournemouth University students. We are led by four democratically-elected sabbatical officers, who are the voice of students at Bournemouth and work to make the student experience as great as possible. Whether that it is through our clubs and societies, our commercial venues or by providing advice and representation, we are here for students.

As a charity, we have a trustee board which steers the strategic direction of the students’ union and provides oversight of the charity’s operations to ensure financial sustainability, legal compliance and reputational integrity. This is an exciting time to join SUBU as a trustee - we have recently completed a democracy and governance review and are currently developing a new strategic plan and are looking for external expertise to help us achieve our strategic objectives.

This is an excellent opportunity to develop your employability skills as a student. You’ll gain experience of sitting on the Board of a multi-million pound charity with a trading subsidiary and play a key role in the strategic direction of the students’ union, as well as gaining key skills in communication, diplomacy and teamwork.

This position is voluntary, however reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed. Training will be provided. You will need to be a student at Bournemouth University for the entirety of your term of office.

Trustees are expected to attend up to five Board meetings a year of around 3-4 hours each, as well as a strategy day. There is some reading and preparation time required for each meeting.

All meetings will take place via Microsoft Teams until the end of 2020, after which they will take place at the Students’ Union in Bournemouth.
