RGU Students’ Union (RGU:Union) is an independent member-led organisation which exists to represent and support students at Robert Gordon University.

As a registered charity in Scotland, RGU:Union is governed by a Trustee Board, comprised of elected Student Presidents, student representatives (elected and appointed), a university representative, plus a number of external trustees who can draw on diverse skills and industry experience to advise and support Union activities and development.

We now seek to recruit a new external trustee to the board, preferably with experience in areas relating to commercial development, fundraising, or community-based activities, however interested applicants from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

The Union is a highly-impactful award winning organisation, which has a positive influence on the student experience at RGU by providing diverse extra-curricular opportunities, undertaking campaigns for change, supporting student wellbeing, and engaging with a wide range of inspiring, hard-working students.
