Help us give more students the life changing education experiences they deserve.
SAUWS is an organisation that supports the 17,000 students who attend the University of the West of Scotland. Our students are amazing, they study everything from accounting to nursing, physics and engineering. In order to get to university our students have often overcome multiple barriers, and compete with many personal challenges to be able to study at university. We see our goal as doing all that we can to ensure that they get the support they need and the positive and transformative university experience they deserve.
We have 5 campuses to provide support to (Paisley, Ayr, Lanarkshire, Dumfries and London) and a limited budget to achieve this. Whilst resources are a challenge, determination and motivation are not. We have an honest, hardworking and humble team of 12 staff and 4 Sabbatical Officers who are dedicated to supporting students in any way they can. We have been on a transformative journey over the last year and have made significant changes to our Board, structures and resourcing model. We are now a stable organisation that is looking to develop and move beyond the operational approach to become more strategic and impactful.
We need a Chief Executive who can help us set a strategy for the future that will empower our team, provide sustainability to the organisation, and grow our profile, influence and income so that we can provide increasingly transformative support and services for our students.
Our ideal candidate is likely to have; exceptional people skills, the ability to create and deliver strategy and a high level of emotional intelligence. More than anything else, you will need to understand that this is a small team with a big remit and you will need to be committed to contributing to all areas the organisation. It’s not essential that you have Student Association experience previously, but you do need to be committed to the idea of supporting the development of individuals who will often be in their first position of leadership.
