  • Queen Margaret University, Musselburgh, EH21 6UU
  • Closing 29th March 2019



Queen Margaret is in an exciting phase of its strategic development. In support of that development, the University Court is seeking to appoint to vacancies in its lay membership.

Committed Court members are critical to the University’s success. Court appointments take account of personal and professional skills and experience in the context of the overall composition of the Court. Currently, we are particularly interested to hear from individuals who have specific expertise in the fields of accountancy (preferably chartered), health, and estates or property development, particularly if this expertise has contributed to success within a higher education context (desirable but not essential). Applicants with other specialist knowledge are welcome to apply. You will have a strong, personal commitment to Higher Education, its governance and the values, aims and objectives of Queen Margaret University.

We are seeking individuals with experience of operating at strategic or board level, or who are able to demonstrate a track record of success in professional areas of expertise. Consideration will be given also to individuals who demonstrate the capacity to develop the required knowledge once they are in the role.

We are committed to equality and diversity and would welcome applications that reflect the breadth and diversity of the community we serve.

Length of Appointment: 3 years, but may be extended for a further 3 years.

Time Commitment (days per week/year) 15 days per annum.

Number of positions advertised: Up to 3
