Recruitment of external members to Council and its committees

Membership of Council

Goldsmiths invites expressions of interest from individuals wishing to become members of the Council.  Council membership always starts on 1 September, with the next round of appointments taking effect on 2014.  Applications are accepted at any time in case of unforeseen vacancies, including from candidates not available until 1 September 2015.

Candidates should have a strong interest in education and in the range of creative, artistic and social fields which are a focus of Goldsmiths' work. The College seeks a variety of qualities in its external Council members, including involvement in a profession or industry relevant to Goldsmiths graduates; business, financial, legal, fundraising or management expertise; as well as contributions to community life in South East London.

Candidates for Council membership are automatically considered for places on other committees, including those which do not require concurrent membership of Council (including Audit Committee - see below).  No information is prepared specifically for applicants apart from the documents which can be downloaded below; however any specific queries may be sent to governance@gold.ac.uk and members applying for Council may also find it helpful to consult the Council Members' Website, which is primarily intended for serving members.
