Ulster University is seeking to appoint an Honorary Treasurer and a number of external independent members to Council, its governing body, from August 2024.  We are seeking exceptional candidates with proven experience in the management and governance of a public, private or community/voluntary sector organisation and with relevant experience across a range of specialisms. The Honorary Treasurer candidate will also require evidence of honed financial acumen, together with a qualification as a chartered or management accountant.

Candidates should also share the University’s values and passion for diversity, openness and inclusivity and a drive to support us in delivery of our strategy, People, Place and Partnership.

A broad range of backgrounds and experiences across Council is essential and the recruitment booklets below contain information on the skills we are looking for, as well as the value that successful individuals can enjoy through these important roles at Ulster University.

Ulster University promotes and celebrates diversity and, in this context, would welcome and encourage nominations from all communities - particularly those from members of the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, disabled and LGBT+ communities, as we recognise that individuals from these groups are currently underrepresented on the Council.  All appointments will be made on merit.
