Vacancy on the USS Board

26 January 2016

There will be a vacancy for a UUK-nominated director on the USS Board which will be created by the retirement from the USS Trustee Board of David McDonnell on 31 March 2016 (currently Pro-Chancellor of the Council of the University of Liverpool and previously Chair of the Council of the University of Liverpool).
The continuing UUK directors are Professor Dame Glynis Breakwell, Professor Sir David Eastwood and Professor Anton Muscatelli.
The appointment is for three years and is renewable for up to two further three year terms. Further information on the post and its requirements is available by emailing 
Given the advantages of having a USS trustee undertaking the role of a Chair of a Governing Council, UUK particularly welcomes applications from current Chairs (or equivalent roles). Applications for this post should be submitted by the end of Friday 19 February 2016. Full details will be supplied in the application pack.
Interviews will be held on Thursday 3 March 2016 (afternoon). As part of the appointment procedure agreed with USS, candidates will also be invited to meet with the Chair and Group Chief Executive Officer of USS before the UUK interviews are held.
