Recruiter: University of Salford
Location: Greater Manchester
Posted: 19 Jul 2017
Closes: 21 Aug 2017
Job Function: Council Member
Position Type: Permanent
The University of Salford is at a pivotal point in its development. For 50 years, our mission has been to prepare people for work. Our belief in making a tangible contribution to industry, in improving opportunities for all stakeholders and in living by strongly held social justice values has forged our identity.
Building on this heritage we have shaped a new, ten year, vision for success, centred on four ground-breaking new ‘Industry Collaboration Zones’. By revolutionising our academic offering and creating a physical focus for integrated working with partners in particular industry sectors we are building a new type of globally-engaged university. Through this distinctive proposition we will deliver an outstanding experience for our near 20,000 strong student body; creating job-ready graduates; world-class applied research; and innovative solutions for our industry partners to provide them with a competitive edge.
To help us achieve our aims we are now seeking to appoint up to four new Council Members. The University Council is responsible for the strategic oversight of the institution’s activities, determining its future direction and ensuring compliance with its framework of governance. We are therefore keen to recruit new members with the requisite experience to act as critical friends to the University Executive Team, bringing support and challenge derived from their broad organisational wisdom as much as from their areas of specialist expertise. Council Members should also be proactive in putting forward the University's case as regional, national and international ambassadors.
With 2017 marking the University’s 50th anniversary there couldn’t be a more exciting time to join us. If you share our vision and possess the skills and experience we seek then we would be keen to hear from you.
