Member of the Board of Governors
Are you a senior professional who would like to use your skills to contribute to an institution that believes education transforms people''s lives?
The mission of the University of Chichester is to provide outstanding education, advance knowledge and benefit the world. With a turnover of GBP 50m+ and campuses in Chichester and Bognor Regis, we offer programmes in teacher education, sport, the arts, humanities and social sciences. The University has also recently undertaken a major investment programme to create a new STEM based facility and courses. The University''s new Tech Park was officially opened on 3 October 2018 by Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. We have a successful track record for widening participation from under-represented groups, impressive student retention and student satisfaction.
Owing to planned retirements in 2019, the University is currently seeking applications from suitably qualified individuals to join its Board of Governors. The University is currently looking to recruit members of the Board with expertise in Finance, Real Estate and the commercial sectors of health, science and engineering, as well as those with experience of the Higher Education Sector.
Members of the Board will be expected to contribute approximately ten days a year with a greater commitment from those taking office.
The roles are not remunerated, although reasonable expenses are reimbursed. The institution is committed to equality and diversity and hopes these roles will appeal to those from all sections of the community.
