Exciting Opportunity for staff to help shape the future direction of the University - University Council Professional Services staff member

(15 October 2020)

The University Council has overall responsibility for the governance and strategic planning of the University. As well as external independent members and the Vice-Chancellor and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor/Provost, it includes 7 members of University staff (of which 5 are academic and 2 can be appointed from all categories of staff). We are currently advertising for one Professional Services staff member, advertised on our internal jobs site here

This is an opportunity to help shape and develop the University, setting the strategic direction and having oversight and overview of the delivery of these plans. This opportunity allows staff to get involved at the highest level of the University’s strategic planning and governance.

Please think about applying or encouraging a colleague. We value the input and engagement of our staff in these key roles. If you would like to know more about the role please contact the University Secretary ( ) or any of the current staff members of Council listed here.
