Use your skills and experiences to govern a multi-million pound charity.

Trustees have overall control of a charity and are responsible for making sure it’s doing what it was set up to do. In the case of your Students' Union, this is making sure that the Union is fulfilling it's core purpose of representing students' academic interests and that all of it's strategic and operational processes back this up.

Trustees use their skills and experience to support their charities, helping them achieve their aims. Trustees also often learn new skills during their time on the board.
