Call for co-opted PR & Campaigning and Business Development focussed co-opted Trustees

May 11, 2022

CHEAD is issuing a call for applications for two co-opted Trustees. We are looking to co-opt a Trustee with demonstrable skills in PR & Campaigning and another with skills and experience in Business Development.

Co-opted Trustees have a very important role on the CHEAD Board of Trustees. They share the responsibility for governing CHEAD and directing how it is managed and run. The Board of Trustees appoints a Chair, Vice Chair and Treasurer, however all Trustees have a role to keep CHEAD running and to enable it to carry out its range of activities.

Co-opted Trustees are appointed to serve a one year term with all co-options being reviewed by the Board of Trustees in July.

The co-opted Trustees would be expected to attend CHEAD Board of Trustee meetings and work with the CHEAD Director of Membership and Operations and the Director of Policy and External Relations to progress activities in these key areas.

CHEAD is proactive in the receipt of nominations from underrepresented communities within our membership as we continue to build capacities in incorporating different perspectives. As a membership body focussing on equity, diversity and inclusivity, we want to promote and support better representation across our board membership. We seek applicants for co-opted Trustees with additional knowledge and expertise within social justice practice and creative HE, to build capacity within our board and centre the voices of staff of colour and marginalised groups at the foreground of meaningful change.

Timetable for applications
CHEAD would welcome applications from candidates at CHEAD member institutions for the role.

The timetable for applications and appointments is as follows:

  • Deadline for applications: Monday 30th May by 5pm
  • Applications considered by the CHEAD Board of Trustees: Friday 3rd June 2022
  • Candidates notified on the outcome of their application: Wednesday 8th June 2022
  • Successful candidates attend CHEAD Board of Trustees Away Day meeting if possible: Wednesday 29th & Thursday 30th June 2022

Potential candidates should read the further information provided about the role of CHEAD Trustee and then complete the nomination form and submit it to the Membership and Operations Director by the deadline, Monday 30th May, 5pm.
