University of Leeds

Council Members

The University of Leeds is one of the UK’s largest, most prestigious and diverse research-intensive universities.

We are a member of the Russell Group, and our excellence in research, education and knowledge exchange has been recognised in recent years in a series of institutional awards: we achieved Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework, we were the Sunday Times University of the Year 2017, and we are in the world’s top 100 universities in the QS rankings and the UK’s top 10 for research.

The University Council, our governing body, plays a significant role in ensuring the effective governance and success of the University. In a rapidly changing external environment (and with an increasing emphasis on regulation and accountability), Council business is growing in complexity. We are currently looking to appoint several external (and ‘lay’) Council Members who will make a significant contribution to the University’s future direction. It is our intention that at least one of the new members of Council will also join the Audit and Risk Committee.

We are seeking individuals with outstanding strategic leadership experience, gained in the public, private or voluntary sectors, who will be able to provide expertise valuable to the governing body. Expressions of interest from individuals with experience in and/or knowledge of audit and risk, IT and cyber security, Estates and infrastructure, and Human Resources are particularly welcomed, but experienced leaders without knowledge of those specific areas should not be deterred from applying. A strong personal commitment to the values, aims and objectives of the University is also essential.

Closing date: 5pm Monday 6 May 2019
