We are looking for self-motivated and highly committed individuals to become our next Student Trustees.


Are you a current student studying at Coventry University, CU Coventry, CU Scarborough, CU London or Coventry University London? Are you looking to expand your experience and build leadership skills? Do you have a drive for strategic and governing decision making? Can you critically discuss the future of a multimillion pound turnover charity and help to make the best decisions for our students? We are looking for self-motivated and highly committed individuals to become our next Student Trustees.

As a Student Trustee you will provide crucial insight into the experiences of current students across the Coventry University Group. You will be making decisions and influencing the strategic direction of the Union and development of our services for our members.

There will be opportunities for you to be involved with a wide range of topics, covering the full breadth of offerings from CUSU in both charity and commercial areas.

You must be a skilled communicator, willing to constructively challenge and influence discussion in a committee based environment. This post requires you to prepare suitably for any Board meetings, ensuring that you are ready to contribute and influence. You must be passionate about working with students in a democratic environment and be willing to be a brand ambassador for CUSU.

  • Study at our CU London, Scarborough or Coventry Campuses or Coventry University London
