These are likely to be held on Tuesdays and will be at the end of October, January, April, July. There will also be two newly formed sub-committees, one of which you will be required to sit on that meet up to four times a year. We would particularly welcome applications from students who identify as women.

What is the Board of Trustees?
The Board of Trustees is the group of people with ultimate responsibility for everything that the Students' Union does. It is responsible for the governance and financial and strategic management of the Students' Union.

In particular, the Board of Trustees has the following three roles:


To make sure that everything we do benefits the students at the University of Chester.
To ensure that the Students' Union remains financially solvent.
To ensure that the Students' Union doesn't break any laws or regulations relating to the work that we carry out.


All decisions by the Trustee Board are taken by all the Trustees, acting collectively and as a team. All Trustees have equal responsibility for the oversight of the Students' Union. Each of the Trustees has their own experiences which, collectively, help ensure that the Board of Trustees can carry out its roles.

If you would like to have an informal discussion about the role or need this information in another format, please contact our team at CSU@chester.ac.uk. For more information on what the Board of Trustees is and what it does, visit https://www.chestersu.com/your-su/trustees
