AUE Executive Committee Positions - Voluntary

{item.headline.entities+}
30 April 2021
There are a few vacancies within the AUE Executive which we are looking to fill.

The AUE relies on a small number of volunteers from within the sector giving up a small amount of their time throughout the year to help steer and manage the association, and without this support the AUE would not be able to function in its current format.

We have four current and future posts that we’re now looking to fill and would be grateful if you could take the time to have a look at the positions and to get in touch if you are interested in supporting the AUE Executive.

The current posts are:

National Vice Chair

  • Our current Vice Chair, Jeni Stevenson of the University of the West of England, is poised to take over as the National Chair when my term comes to an end in September 2021. The Vice Chair position is a key role in ensuring continuity of the AUE and is one that we’re keen to fill ahead of September 2021.
