Chair – Imperial College Union

Apr 21, 2021

Closing on: May 23, 2021

Inclusive Boards are pleased to be supporting Imperial College Union in their search for a new Chair. This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Chair interested in doing an extraordinary amount of good for students at one of the world’s most prestigious institutions.

Imperial College Union (The Union) is a student-led, democratically run charity with elected representatives who sit on Union committees, direct Union resources, and represent the views of students to the College and external bodies. The Union is led by student officers who act as representatives to the 21,000+ members. The objective of Imperial College Union is to have a positive impact on the experience and outcomes of all Imperial College students from all backgrounds. The way positive impact is delivered is through a combination of service provision and advocating for students. The Union has had a long, varied history over nearly 100 years, but the last 18 months have been especially challenging. The Union is currently in the middle of a period of turnaround and transformation with a new strategic plan and operating model currently in development.

As Chair and part of the Imperial College Union Board of Trustees, you will be responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity. This includes ensuring the
charity has a clear vision, ensuring financial stability and compliance with relevant governing documents, laws and regulatory guidelines.
