Board of Governors/Independent Governors

The Board of Oxford Brookes University is responsible for the educational character and mission of the University and oversight of its activities. We are looking for three new Independent Governors to join the Board.

Oxford Brookes is a successful and ambitious University with sound finances and an effective Board. The role of Governor is not salaried, but it provides an opportunity to contribute to the development of the University, working with other members of the Board, the Vice-Chancellor and other senior staff.

In order to maintain the right balance of skills and expertise on the Board, we are particularly interested in appointing Governors with significant and successful backgrounds in the following areas; IT/Transformational change, Capital Projects and  European or International experience.

Equality and diversity are fundamental to the University’s values and we would welcome applications from under-represented areas, especially those from black and minority ethnic groups.

Closing date: 5th May 2017, 12pm
