trustee roles: why not give something back?

It is exciting times within the SU now with nominations for officer roles opening, however, I can’t let you forget about putting yourself forward to become a part of the Trustee Board. 

Our Trustee Board is made up of elected students as well as professionals, they all work together to oversee the union. 

This is an amazing opportunity for you to have a say in the direction our union takes. 

You will play an integral role in: 

  • Setting our future strategy 

  • Holding management to account 

  • Scrutinising the effectiveness of the uea(su)’s operations 

  • Reviewing uea(su) policy 

  • There are a sub-committees that work alongside the Trustee Board which you could join 

For this term, there will be two more meetings in March and June. If you are a busy bee and cannot attend, there is the option to Skype into the meeting. 

This role will provide you with invaluable experience at the top level of the decision making within an organisation which has an annual turnover of around £10 million. 

If you’re interested in a position as a student trustee, then what are you waiting for? You can apply for a postgraduate or an open place, you just need to fill in the application form which you can find here.
