Goldsmiths Students' Union External Trustees

Goldsmiths Students' Union External Trustees

Want to consider the challenge of becoming a Trustee?

We're are looking for four external trustees to work closely with the Students' Union Officers, Senior Leadership Team and Trustee Board to deliver on our strategic aims, ensuring that we're continuing to be recognised for the innovation and quality of the services and support that we provide.

Goldsmiths Students’ Union is vital to the overall experience of students whilst studying at the Goldsmiths College. Our purpose is to represent, inspire, involve and independently support our members to enhance their university experience. We’re independent to Goldsmiths College but we share a goal of a community that is diverse, welcoming and supportive.

We’ve gone on quite a journey over the last couple of years and will be making some key decisions about how best to achieve our plan over the coming months. Our organisation has rapidly changed and grown since summer 2016, seeing a significant increase in engagement, campaigning and activism among students, support for student representatives, new commercial outlets and our ability to understand student opinion to influence Goldsmiths College decision making.

We have over 120 staff, including 25 that work permanently in our office and outlets, supported by over 100 students doing casual work through the year.

We support our trustees to promote our values, which are to be empowering, proactive on liberation & social justice, democratically student-led and accessible for all.

To apply, please download the application form and job information pack from our website.  

Completed applications should be sent to [email protected].

Closing date for application is 17 Nov 2019 at 5pm.

Shortlisted candidates will be notified by 19 Nov 2019.
