why not give something back? 


Our trustee board is made up of both elected students and knowledgeable professionals, all of whom come together to oversee the union legally and democratically.

While these positions are voluntary and unpaid, you could have the chance to help steer the direction of one of the most varied, thriving organisations in the region.

the trustee board


The Board meets quarterly in September, December, March, and June – if you're away from campus you can also Skype into meetings, so you don't always have to be here to take part. Trustees also have the opportunity to join one of the Board’s specialised sub-committees, which focus on finance and human relations.

As a trustee you will play a key role in:

  • Setting our future strategy

  • Holding management to account

  • Scrutinising the effectiveness of the uea(su)’s operations

  • Reviewing uea(su) policy

In return for the work and commitment that you will bring to your role, you will gain invaluable hands-on experience at the top level of decision making of an organisation with an annual turnover of £8.5 million, as well as investing in you by providing the training you might need for the role.
