Date Posted: 08/04/2021
Closing Date: 07/05/2021
Solent University is a modern and ambitious university with exciting plans for the future. We are focused on combining applied learning with the academic side of higher education, providing the connections and confidence to turn knowledge into careers with real meaningful impact. Our community is vibrant and innovative with our six values of respect, ownership, inclusivity, engagement, integrity, and teamwork underpinning everything we do.
Due to several Governor terms coming to an end this summer, we now have three openings to join our Board. These are highly strategic roles as the Board of Governors of the University is responsible for determining the educational character and future direction of the University, overseeing its financial performance and operational activities, to ensure that learners from all backgrounds become enterprising citizens and responsible leaders.
We are keen to explore applications from across sectors, but candidates must be able to demonstrate some previous non-executive experience as well as experience in one of more of the following areas:
- A professionally qualified accountant, who in addition to Independent Governor will become our Chair of Audit Committee.
- Senior level, leadership experience in the Higher Education Sector.
- A clinical practitioner with leadership experience.
- Strategic HR, OD and change management experience.
You will be able to demonstrate your capacity to work as part of a team whilst exercising independence of judgement. You will appreciate what good governance looks like and easily collaborate and work with colleagues as well as bring a strong personal commitment to higher education and the aims of Solent University.
The role of governor is voluntary and unpaid, although the University will pay reasonable travel and other expenses. For more information on these exciting roles, including the time commitment,
