An opportunity to join the Board of governors

Would you like to make a difference by helping to expand educational opportunities for all by supporting the University of Bedfordshire to realise its vision to:

“A vibrant, ambitious academic community, celebrating diversity and the transformative power of education”

A number of independent governors will soon be completing their term of office and the University is seeking to appoint up to four independent members to our Board. Independent members support the development of the University, overseeing its strategy and long-term future. Using your skills, experience and a broader perspective you could help the University to fulfil its mission. In return you will have an opportunity to develop your professional profile and networks, working alongside a supportive team of your fellow governors and staff.

The current members of the Board contribute a wide variety of skills and experience to the University and are leaders in their own fields. The University is seeking a diverse range of skills derived from a range of occupations, professions and sectors (public and private) and from candidates at different points in their careers. We would especially welcome interest from those with backgrounds in Estates and Facilities, EDI, HR, Legal, and post-16 education.

Do not let our list define you; if you have the skills, drive and motivation to help the University succeed we would like to hear from you. We are an organisation that values diversity and inclusivity and the benefits they bring to our University. We are keen to diversify the membership of the Board and applications from women, those from ethnic minority backgrounds, those with declared disabilities, and LBGTQ candidates will be warmly received.

The role of Governor is a voluntary position and likely to require a minimum time commitment of around fifteen days a year. Reasonable expenses will be reimbursed, including cover should you have caring responsibilities
