Durham University – Lay Members of Council

Location: Durham

Date Posted: 13/06/2020

Closing Date: 13/07/2020

A globally outstanding centre of teaching and research excellence, a collegiate community of extraordinary people, a unique and historic setting – Durham is a university like no other. Ranked in the top 100 universities in the world and top 7 in the UK in all major rankings, Durham excels at both world leading research and teaching, and has a distinctive student experience. The University comprises 26 departments across four faculties, with over 4,000 staff and 18,000 students, and income of over £380m in 2019. All our students belong to one of 17 colleges which support and inspire our students to become the best they can be, in their studies and beyond.

Durham University is now seeking outstanding candidates to join the Council as Lay Members. Members of Council are responsible for the stewardship of the University, overseeing its strategy, performance and regularly reviewing the effectiveness of University’s governance. The Council is looking to appoint members with strategic and senior experience within complex organisations of scale. Applications would be welcomed from candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas:

• audit and risk management,
• major estate, infrastructure and commercial activities;
• senior experience within a regulated organisation (or regulator);
• senior academic experience in the higher education sector; and/or
• experience of commercialisation.

Candidates must demonstrate a strong understanding of the governance duties, responsibilities and liabilities of a non-Executive or trustee role. A strong commitment to the values and aims of the University are critical along with excellent interpersonal and networking skills. The time commitment is a minimum of 18 days per year and meetings are likely to take place both virtually and in person in the future. Durham University is committed to equality and applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in the University.
