Made up of elected students and external professionals, the trustee board are responsible for making sure the union's finances are all in check and that all activities benefit all students. It includes four Sabbatical officers, three students and two people appointed for their expertise. You can read how the Trustee Board works by reading through our Governing Documents.

How can I get involved?

The Union holds an Annual General Meeting, or AGM, once per year in the final term, and the date is published on our democracy calendar. At this meeting, the Trustee Board will present on the Union's Finances for the previous year, detail all of the organisations the union has affiliated with on your behalf and outline any key impacts it has had over the past year. The AGM is a great opportunity for you to ask the Board any questions and hold it to account.

Interested in becoming a trustee?

We have three Student Trustee positions, which are elected in either first or second term elections depending on when a position is vacant. You could also become a Student Trustee by becoming a Sabbatical Officer in our 2nd term elections.

If you are a member of the public and are interested in becoming a trustee for the Students Union, we will publish any vacancies on our jobs page. If you are interested and we don't have any current vacancies, please get in touch with our Chief Executive Officer as our community of Students' Unions are always looking for new talent excited to get involved in our governance.
