We are looking for a new Chief Executive Officer to lead our highly successful independent charity. The Students’ Union supports over 15,000 students at Huddersfield University with representation, social activities and advice and support, and we are proud of the levels of engagement we have achieved over the last three years with the current strategic plan. Our new Chief Executive will have the opportunity to develop that strategy to the next stage and use data to gain a detailed insight into the diverse student community at Huddersfield University.
We are looking for someone who is a motivating leader and a real team player. Someone who has the enthusiasm to support five elected Officers in their roles and responsibilities, as well as supporting a great team of over 40 permanent staff and up to 90 part time student staff.
You will have a good knowledge, and feel passionate about, the importance of extra-curricular activity as part of the University experience and understand the value it has in personal and skills development, as well as in social mobility. You will also have some understanding of the current Higher Education landscape and demonstrate strong partnership working skills, as the University and Students’ Union relationship will be a key part of your role.
The Students’ Union is emerging from the current pandemic in a strong financial position, so there will be plenty of opportunity to maximise the opportunities for students going into the next academic year and develop the digital as well as physical capabilities of the charity. All surplus generated, including income from a retail outlet and a lettings agency, is invested back into the facilities provided across the organisation for our members.
