Governor, University Court – Property & Estates

About the role

Glasgow Caledonian, the largest and leading modern university in Scotland – is a vibrant, values-led university with campuses in the heart of Glasgow and London.

This year we rocketed into the top 40 universities in the UK in the highly regarded Guardian University Guide, were ranked the UK’s 2nd top performing modern university in the inaugural Daily Mail guide and entered the top 50 UK universities in the highly coveted 2024 Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide for the first time. We are the top performing modern University in Scotland in all three guides.

Helping more young people from diverse backgrounds into university is something we are extremely passionate about and at heart, we are a civic university with a global outlook, dedicated to driving positive social change for current and future generations. Guided by our values, integrity, responsibility, creativity and confidence, we work with others to transform the lives of our students and communities we serve.

The Court reflects a breadth of strategic experience and is now looking to appoint a governor who has experience of executive leadership roles in the public, private or third sector and is experienced at a strategic level in property development and management.

For a governor with this background, it is an exciting time to join the Court, the University is reviewing its corporate strategy and is about to develop a new estates strategy and masterplan to support delivery of its ambitions and growth trajectory in Glasgow and London. You will bring strategic property management experience to offer advice and support to the Estates team within the University.

Crucially, candidates will be able to demonstrate their commitment to the University’s mission, vision and values and to offer the time and dedication to contribute at meetings, informally, and as an ambassador for the University.

The University is committed to achieving a diverse governing body and all appointments will be made on merit, following a fair and transparent process.
