How to Become a Governor at Hull College

Are you interested in shaping the strategy and character of your local Further Education college? Here at Hull College, we are always interested in hearing from members of the community who wish to serve on our Board of Governors.

A Governor is a voluntary, unpaid role but there are many rewards that come with it - the opportunity to gain Board level experience, to share your expertise and perspective in a meaningful and rewarding environment and to develop new skills that will benefit your own career.

We welcome all applications but are currently particularly interested in individuals with experience or knowledge in Engineering, working with young people (including SEND) and LGBT+ Communities.

Applications are open now and close on Friday 19th May - if you would like more information about the role or apply, click here to download an application form or get in touch with our Director of Governance, Catherine Sykes, via e-mail
