RES Trustee Board vacancy

11 May 2022

The Royal Economic Society is inviting applications from members to fill two vacancies for Co-opted Trustees on the RES Trustee Board.

The RES Trustee Board is legally responsible for the overall governance, management and policies of the Society, ensuring that the charitable objects for which it has been set up are met.

Trustees should be members of the Society and meet other criteria to act as a charity trustee as set out by the Charity Commission.

Co-opted Trustees are appointed by the RES Nominations & Appointments committee on behalf of Council. Following a review, the committee particularly welcomes applications from members:

  • With an interest in economics teaching in higher education
  • With an interest in conducting outreach work (e.g., to schools)
  • With an interest in fundraising and/or marketing

Additionally, the committee particularly welcomes applications from those in non-Russell Group universities.

Applicants should submit a current curriculum vitae and a covering letter setting out your experience and qualifications (if any) relevant to the role and your motivations for becoming a trustee of the Society. Applications should be sent by email to resoffice@res.org.uk by Friday 24 June 2022.
