Vacancies for independent members of universities’ governing bodies will be advertised here as they arise.
Independent members make up a majority of the membership of universities’ governing bodies and so play a highly significant role in university governance. Institutions are highly appreciative of their service.
[Additional text to be added here to explain in general terms what is involved in serving as an independent member in terms of time commitment, length of service, experience etc. Add diversity statement about applications are invited from across all of Scottish society with particular interest in underrepresented groups – exact wording TBC]
The Scottish Code of Good HE Governance requires that all vacancies for independent members of governing body are advertised externally. This is a compliance requirement all institutions adhere to. In addition to this website, vacancies will be advertised on institutions’ own websites and may appear in local press, in specific trade press and websites.
