Leeds Beckett University are looking for at least two Board Governors. Leeds Beckett is a modern, professional university with ambition. We are a community of around 23,000 students from over 140 countries and 2,800 staff, and our history dates back to the founding of Leeds Mechanics Institute in 1824. Our vision is to be an excellent, accessible, globally engaged university contributing positively to a thriving northern economy. We place an emphasis on our role as an anchor institution for Leeds and the wider region. Our mission is to make a positive and decisive difference to people, communities and organisations through excellent education, research and service. The University is looking to appoint at least two Board Governors who will play a critical role in realising the University’s ambitions, helping us to recognise future opportunities, and to tackle challenges with confidence and agility, by providing appropriate challenge and support to the University executive team. For one Board position we are looking for candidates with senior academic experience in higher education, a role on the Board which is required by the University’s constitution. We are also seeking interest more widely from those with relevant and contemporary skills and experience from across the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors, particularly strategic level experience in/of the regulated industries and digital customer experience. The University would very much welcome board-level experience but demonstrable understanding of the nuances between the role of an executive and non-executive is essential. The successful candidates will have character, resilience, and a desire to learn. Above all, applicants will be able to provide scrutiny and robust challenge and will be unafraid to ask the difficult questions where necessary. They will be able to provide a broad strategic view on the variety of matters which come before the Board. They will appreciate the context in which the University operates, share its community-based values, and view issues with an eye to both the education of young people, and the benefit of the communities which it serves. We are proud of our open and inclusive culture and our Governors are passionate about the University’s work and the positive impact we have on the lives of our students. We are committed to ensuring our University is a place where everyone feels respected, valued and supported to achieve excellence. This commitment exists alongside our legal and moral obligations to provide an inclusive environment for our colleagues, students and members of the public who may be affected by our activities. We therefore welcome applications from candidates of any age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, faith, or disability. Quote: LEEDS.
