These positions provide a unique opportunity to contribute to higher education at a time of significant change in the sector.  We are keen to recruit new members from education, business, industry and the professions, as well as from individuals who can represent the interests of students. 

Enhancing the diversity of the membership of the committees is important to us and we welcome applications from under-represented groups, including women, disabled people and people from an ethnic minority background. 

Further information and a person specification are available from the appropriate committee contact: 

One-page application statements addressing the person specification should be sent to the appropriate committee e-mail address above by midnight on 11 April 2014.
