The University of Gloucestershire Students' Union is a registered charity dedicated to improving the lives of students at the University of Gloucestershire. We are in the top 10 for most improved SU’s in the country as measured by a rise in NSS scores and we are ambitious and entrepreneurial.

The University of Gloucestershire Students' Union is committed to equality of opportunity in employment and we understand the benefits of recruiting a diverse range of people.  We welcome and encourage applications from underrepresented sections of the community. Please scroll down for current role vacancies (Events & Venue Manager, Commercial Services Coordinator plus Student and External Trustee positions).

External Trustees x3

The Students’ Union at the University of Gloucestershire delivers a range of activities and opportunities to enhance the lives of our students, from sports and societies to welfare and representation. We are seeking to appoint three new external Trustees to join our Board of Trustees. 

We are particularly looking for Trustees with financial, HR or commercial acumen. 

For further information on these role and how to apply please download the recruitment pack. 

The deadline for applications: noon on Thursday 2nd January.  Interviews on 6th or 13th January.

(Please note that External Trustees are unpaid but associated expenses such as travel will be reimbursed.)

Student Trustee

We are looking for individuals with good decision-making skills, who can work well in a team and are open to learning, whilst respecting that certain discussions of the Board need to remain confidential.

The individual appointed as trustee will need to be sympathetic to the aims of the organisation and more generally share a commitment to the broader values of the student movement: student representation, student rights and the student experience – and the importance of students having a platform to organise together to help make these values a reality.

The role requires a careful balance: trustees need to respect the democratic will of the membership where possible but also be willing to think creativity and point out potential risk in any proposals. An eye for detail to ensure the Union is being well-governed and the ability to see future opportunities are also important.

This pack (PDF) contains an overview of the role and information about how to apply. 


As a Students' Union we are committed to providing a life-enhancing experience to all students at the University of Gloucestershire. To find out more about working for our exciting organisation please head to our 'About Us' section.
