Leeds Trinity University

Horsforth, Leeds


Recruitment of an Independent Board Governor and Co-opted Committee Members


A small university with a big reputation, Leeds Trinity University is renowned for teaching excellence and producing highly employable graduates. Located on a beautiful campus six miles from Leeds – one of the UK’s best student cities – the University has been providing outstanding, student-centred higher education for more than 50 years. With a mission centred on transforming lives by fostering a unique and rich combination of academic, professional and personal development in a supportive and nurturing community, widening participation is at the heart of everything the University does. Driven by the values of care, collaboration, integrity, excellence and inclusivity, the University provides distinctive educational experiences that ensure every student is a name, not a number, and that are grounded in its Catholic identity and foundation.

 

With the exciting appointment of a new Chair in summer 2020, the appointment of Vice Chancellor in autumn 2020 and the current development of a dynamic and ambitious new five-year Institutional Strategy, the University is seeking candidates for one vacancy on the University’s Board of Governors, plus three additional Co-opted Committee Members. First-rate governance is essential to institutional success and Board and Committee members will play a crucial role in the future development of the University, providing strategic guidance and constructive challenge during a period of unprecedented change for the higher education sector.

 

For the Board Governor vacancy, we are seeking candidates with senior strategic leadership experience gained within a Higher Education environment. For the three new co-optees, we are interested to hear from candidates with high level experience of one or more of the following areas: finance and audit, national educational policy development, or digital technologies. Leeds Trinity University is wholly committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and we are keen to involve individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds who have appropriate experience in the private, public, or voluntary sectors.
