As KCLSU is a charity, we are required to have trustees. As a Student Trustee, you’ll sit on KCLSU’s Trustee Board – deciding on the strategic future of KCLSU, as well as making important legal and financial decisions about the charity. The skills you’ll gain, such as negotiation abilities, risk assessment and budgeting, are very attractive to future employers and will be a great addition to your CV. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain invaluable skills and experience, while helping to improve our Union and student life.
Being a Student Trustee for KCLSU is a voluntary, part-time role and all current KCL students are eligible to be one. The Student Trustee role starts on 1 November and ends on 31 July, so if you are interested in being nominated as a trustee you need to commit to this time frame. Some weeks are quiet with no work to review, but during a typical week when committees or the Board meets, you will need to allow 2-3 hours of time to prepare.
All Student Trustees receive support to provide you with the information you need for the role, including being buddied with an Officer Trustee (one of our Sabbatical Officers). There are four Student Trustee positions available.
