Robert Gordon University, a leading university with a track record of excellence, ambition and innovation, wishes to appoint a number of independent members to its Board of Governors. The university is known for its excellence in preparing its students for the world of work, has an outstanding record for high quality education, and it committed to strong engagement with business, industry and the public sector.

The university has an immediate requirement for independent governors from the health and finance professions who have demonstrated leadership and integrity and have skills and contacts that can benefit the university.

Successful candidates are likely to have experience of operating at the highest level within an organisation and be able to demonstrate a track record of success in either the health or finance profession.

In the coming period we also anticipate requirements and would welcome applications from, individuals in the following areas of expertise:

  • Arts, Design and Creative Industries

  • Secondary Education

For these requirements, we would also welcome notes of interest from individuals with less experience who we would consider in a developmental role.
