In March 2020 members of Congregation were invited to submit nominations for two external members of Council, resulting in the appointment of Wendy Becker in August 2020. Due to COVID the recruitment of a second external member was postponed but has now been restarted.
We now have an opportunity for an external member to join the University’s Council and chair the University’s Audit and Scrutiny Committee. It is a highly rewarding opportunity to contribute to the strategy and governance of the University, working closely with the senior leadership of the University at an important point in its development. The appointment is for a term of four years, extendable for a further four years.
Members of Congregation are invited to submit nominations for consideration by the Nominations Committee for each place on Council, taking account of the criteria set out in the Gazette notice, on a form available here or from Rebecca Thomas, Planning & Council Secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org, 01865 280317). The Nominations Committee understands that nominations may be made without any communication by the nominator with the nominee. Nominators should indicate on the nominations form if any informal communication has taken place.
The deadline for nominations is 12 November 2021.
The nominations form can be found here, and a copy of the role criteria here.
