Brunel calls on community to guide its future

Outstanding people from all areas of the community are being sought to sit on Brunel University London’s governing body, on the eve of its 50th Anniversary.

The University Council meets six times a year and is responsible for making decisions that drive the university forward.

Brunel is now seeking expressions of interest from individuals who can show a high level of achievement in their professional lives or the knowledge and experience needed to support its ever-growing reputation for academic excellence and world-class research.

The openings are for independent members of Council who can serve for an initial four years and, though successful applicants will be volunteering their time, all reasonable costs associated with membership will be met by the university.

Employees and students of Brunel aren’t eligible to sit on Council, but applications are very welcome from university alumni.

For further details, including a job description, person specification and information on how to apply, please visit quoting job reference number 2273. The closing date for applications is Friday 6 November 2015.

A series of events will be held at Brunel to mark the university’s 50th year – including public debates, film nights, a gala party and a Discovery Trail on campus. The centrepiece will be Charter Day on 6 July next year, when the university will celebrate becoming a university 50 years ago.
