Accessible, Supportive, Innovative and Ambitious

Wrexham University invites applications from enthusiastic and committed individuals who can make a positive contribution to the work of the Board of Governors.

We are currently looking to appoint new independent governors who share our core values, who come from a wide range of backgrounds and provide a broad range of knowledge, skills, and experience.

Currently we are specifically looking for people with financial qualifications/ financial experience gained within a predominantly finance-based role.

Governors need to bring particular behaviours to the Board and play an appropriate part in ensuring the necessary business is carried out efficiently, effectively and in a manner appropriate for the proper conduct of public business and charitable status.

Being a governor also provides opportunities to work collaboratively with existing governors, staff and students and play a key role in delivering the long-term vision and strategy of the university. The role also provides opportunities for personal development and building professional next works.
