The University of Liverpool Vacancies – Lay Members of Council

Closing date for receipt of applications: Mon, 10 Sep 2018, 5pm.

The University of Liverpool is a member of the prestigious Russell Group of the UK’s leading research universities, and is consistently ranked in the top 200 universities worldwide.

The Role

As the University’s governing body, the Council is responsible for approving the University’s strategy and supporting policies; determining key business decisions; and monitoring institutional and executive performance.

Lay members play a key role, bringing expertise from other sectors and independent perspectives to the governance
of the University.

Who are we looking for?

Council members are drawn from a variety of backgrounds. We are seeking an individual with a finance qualification and members with experience of the NHS, digital and secondary education sectors.  However, candidates from other backgrounds should not be deterred from applying.

Members should have a commitment to public service and be able to demonstrate that they meet the criteria as a ‘fit and proper person’, as defined by the Office for Students.

We would particularly welcome expressions of interest from BAME, disabled, female and LGBT candidates, as well as those with a particular connection to the University, or the Liverpool City Region.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Alison Fairclough, Clerk to Council, tel: 0151 794 2018 or e-mail: a.fairclough@liverpool.ac.uk.
