Lay Council Member

The University of Leeds is seeking to appoint high-calibre individuals with broad leadership qualities, who can add value to the work of the Council, the University's governing body.

Key attributes include:

  • ability to operate at board level in a significant organisation and committed to being an active Council participant
  • affinity with the University's culture, values and strategy, and its ambitions to make a societal impact locally, nationally and globally;
  • a personal commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion;
  • a commitment to exercising standards of good conduct in public life; and
  • sound and independent judgement and a belief in collective responsibility and decision-making.
  • While welcoming broad experience from any sector, we are particularly keen to hear from people who can demonstrate the following:

  • regional and/or international impact in their business or charitable roles;
  • education and education technology experience;
  • strategic finance and/or estates experience;
  • strategic communications and brand experience.
  • However, we also welcome candidates with less direct knowledge of these areas.

    Whilst many Council members are resident in the Leeds region, this is not a prerequisite. We are proud to be a multi-cultural community, and value diversity. We welcome applications from all sections of society, and especially from individuals from under-represented groups.

    The expected commitment is around ten days per year for an initial three-year period. Although not remunerated all reasonable expenses will be paid.
