If you’re missing Edge Hill and would like to give something back, why not get involved in our new Students’ Union Board? As a graduate of the university you already have the best qualifications for the job – an affection for Edge Hill and first-hand experience of being a student here.

We are looking for three people to become our first alumni trustees of the board, working alongside our elected student trustees to drive the SU forward.

The Students’ Union is the voice of the 18,000 students who study at Edge Hill University; we campaign on the issues our membership are passionate about, from the quality of teaching and learning to campus improvements, from the environment to disability rights.

We need individuals with board-level experience for these unique roles – people who have the ability to challenge, monitor and support the board in a way that embraces our student-led, democratic environment. If you have knowledge of finance, legal and compliance matters, commercial development, change management or strategic leadership, that’s even better.

While the role is voluntary, the SU will reimburse all reasonable expenses for attendance at board meetings. So why not give something back to the student body and have the excuse of coming back to campus four times a year for meetings?

If you would like to find out more, please contact Paul Malone, General Manager, on 01695 584052 / 07780 963360 or paul.malone@edgehill.ac.uk. The closing date for applications is Friday 25th September 2009.
