University of Exeter Students’ Guild is the students’ union of the University of Exeter, a destination university that ranks in the top 10 of the UK’s universities. We are a high performing, thriving and dynamic organisation and put students right at the heart of decision making. With a committed and collectively passionate team we are dedicated to delivering the highest professional standards in everything we do. We enjoy a strong relationship with the University of Exeter - operating as both critical friend and partner. Our relationship is based on trust and mutual respect with a genuine agreement that we both want the best for students.

Under the leadership of our outgoing Chief Executive the organisation has gone from strength to strength - we have one of the highest student satisfaction scores  in the sector, a proactive sabbatical team and staff  and an ambitious strategy. Our outgoing Chief Executive will be a hard act to follow but the legacy he leaves is excellent and we have much more that we want to achieve. There are challenges ahead such as increasing student numbers, ensuring excellent student experience across all our campuses and continuing to develop membership affinity, to name a few, but we are in great shape to take these on and are looking forward to the future.

To meet our high expectations our ideal candidate will bring a strong track record of leadership in a service oriented organisation. Strategic, with an ability to meet both the demands of the present whilst being alert to opportunities on the horizon, you will also be commercially astute and bring a degree of entrepreneurial flair.  With excellent interpersonal skills your ability to effectively communicate and build trust with a range of stakeholders will be proven, as will your ability to coach and mentor others.

Whatever your background, the foundation of your approach must be focused on supporting all students to be active, engaged and participative.

This is arguably one of the most exciting opportunities in the Students’ Union sector at the moment. 

Closing date for applications is Friday 11 October 2013.
