Student Trustee

Closing date

Midnight, Sunday 30 May 2021

Start Date

12 July 2021


Voluntary, unpaid

The Students' Union is ultimately accountable to a Board of Trustees, who oversee the strategic direction, and financial, legal and reputational viability of the charity.

The Board of Trustees is made up of:

  • Four elected sabbatical officers
  • Three student trustees (recruited from the student body)
  • Five external trustees (individuals from outside of Royal Holloway, appointed on the basis of their expertise and experience)

This voluntary role will give you valuable insight into the workings of a charitable organisation along with significant influence on decisions being made by the Students’ Union. You will get the chance to discuss, debate and decide on the strategic direction of the organisation and its plans for the future while ensuring it is always acting in the interests of students.

It is an unbelievable opportunity to not only witness but experience the inner workings of a charity, from financial matters to the governance structures.

You must be a registered student for the forthcoming year to apply for this role while you will be required to commit to at least one day of induction between 28 June and 9 July 2021 and at least four Board of Trustee meetings throughout the academic year.
