Queen’s University Belfast – Membership of Senate

Queen’s University Belfast is among the top 1% of global universities and is a member of the Russell Group of UK research intensive universities.

Senate, as the Governing Body of “The Queen’s University of Belfast” carries overall responsibility for the mission, strategic vision, performance and governance of the University. The Queen’s University of Belfast is a registered charity and, as such, members of the governing body are also charity trustees. Senate consists of 23 trustees, the majority of whom are non-executive and are appointed / elected for a period of four years.

Under the Statues of the University, Senate is now seeking to appoint a number of new co-opted lay members, to act as charity trustees, to commence in 2022.

Nominations are invited from those with appropriate senior level experience in management and governance, together with specialist expertise in a relevant area. The ability to commit the time and energy necessary to the work of Senate, and its core Committees, is also essential.

The position does not attract remuneration, but expenses necessarily incurred will be reimbursed. It should also be noted that co-opted lay members serve in an individual capacity and not as representatives of any organisation or corporate body.

The University is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and it is within this context that it welcomes nominations and/or expressions of interest to Senate from all those who are eligible to apply. The University would particularly welcome nominations and/or applications from anyone who identifies with an under-represented group or community.
