Become a Trustee
We’re always looking for dedicated, passionate people, of all ages, with a range of professional and life experience, to join the Student Hubs Board of Trustees. Register your interest to find out more.
As a trustee, you’ll be supporting Student Hubs to pursue its aims and objectives, as well as supporting our strategy, governance, impact, financial performance and organisational development.
Why become a Student Hubs trustee?
If you become a Student Hubs trustee, you’ll be supporting the development of a fast-moving organisation, learning about charity governance and developing your professional skills. As a charity, we support over 1,700 students every year to volunteer, and over 3,000 students attended training across our network.
You’ll join a diverse board of trustees with a range of personal and professional experience across a whole range of fields. All our trustees are trained and supported throughout their time with us, fully welcomed to participate and develop their skills.
Who we’re looking for
We are looking for people who share our belief that young people should graduate from university as engaged citizens, and that universities should be providing them with the opportunities and support they need to make this a reality. It’s important that you’re passionate about empowering young people to achieve their potential and make a difference, regardless of background, and can embody our values, to be ‘bold’, ‘ambitious’, ‘social’, ‘motivational’ and ‘long-term’. We’ll also look for particular skills and experience when we advertise specific roles, based on gaps in the remaining board.
We’re actively looking to improve the diversity of our Board of Trustees, so we’d especially like to hear from people from diverse backgrounds. The majority of our Board are first-time Trustees and just under half of our current board are under 30. We always have Student Hubs alumni and previous service users on the board. As such, we actively encourage applications from candidates with no previous Board experience.
There are four trustee meetings a year (currently remote but usually in London). Your initial trustee commitment would be a year. Three years is the maximum time you can act as a Trustee. We ask our trustees to commit six to eight hours a month towards their role, including preparing for meetings, catching up with staff and being available for any necessary troubleshooting.
While we’re not currently recruiting for Trustees, you can register you interest in joining us. We’l be in touch next time a vacancy becomes available.
We are an ambitious team that is transforming the Higher Education sector in the UK through student social action. Every day at Student Hubs is unique, filled with exciting challenges, innovative thinking and laughter.
Our amazing staff team is at the core of all this and we have a values-led culture that helps them thrive. Our benefit package reflects this:
The opportunity – for rapid growth and development. We’ll trust you early on with responsibility and ownership over your work.
Investing in your development – tailored training days, peer support networks, internal mentoring and regular opportunities to work on projects outside your role.
Flexible and remote working – you’re in control of when and how you work. We know our staff are happiest and do their best work when given this freedom.
Minimum holiday allowance – so you can find a work/life balance that suits you. We strive to maintain a work culture that supports the wellbeing of our staff.
Team time – regular team days and staff holidays. We’re a social team who do fantastic work and have lots of fun along the way.
