Members of the business community still have time to express an interest in joining a range of committees connected to the University of Aberdeen's governing body.

The University is currently seeking six talented and committed individuals to join the standing committees of Court as independent external lay or co-opted members.

Established in 1495 to serve the north-east of Scotland, today the University is a global presence in higher education. A dual focus on the Aberdeen city region and the wider world is as important to it today as it was five centuries ago.

Offering new challenges, continued professional development and the opportunity to make a difference, the University wants to hear from individuals keen to support it in achieving its strategic ambitions.

Posts are available on a number of committees, namely: Audit and Risk, Commercialisation, Governance and Nominations; and Remuneration.

The University is committed to creating and sustaining a diverse and inclusive culture and wishes to encourage applications from candidates with a high level of personal skills and competence to help provide assurance that it is meeting its potential and managing its exposure to risk in a way that delivers economy, efficiency and effectiveness.

None of the positions are renumerated. The closing date for applications is 5pm on Wednesday, January 24, 2024. More information on the opportunity is available here.
