Candidates for Trustee Board elections announced

Wednesday 13-04-2016 - 11:59

The period of nominations for our Trustee Board elections has closed and we can now announce the candidates standing for election.

The candidates for Trustee Board positions, who will be elected during NUS National Conference, are as follows:

Jack Mably

Hi I'm Jack Mably, current president at Birmingham Guild of Students and future third year undergraduate student. The national union of 7 million students is slowly losing touch with its members and as it seeks to serve primarily those sabbatical officers who are heavily involved. It's time that we had some actual student representation on committees across NUS as well as the many sabbs we already have involved!

Following a successful governance and democracy review at my union this year I am keen to provide a comprehensive oversight of NUS to ensure it is complying and responding effectively to any financial and legal challenges.

Christy McMorrow
Vote Christy McMorrow for NUSUK Trustee

Having been Chair of the Trustee Board at a Union with over 200 core staff, I know how difficult trustee decisions (and how long Trustee paperwork can be!) But it is vital that in NUS, we have Trustees who have clear values that hey bring to the role, as well as a commitment to good governance. As a Trustee at Sheffield, I have ensured campaign events against PREVENT have gone ahead with student support, when University support has been withdrawn for the sake of "balance". If elected, I will put the same principles into practice for NUS.


Thomas Phipps
Vote Tom for Student Trustee

I'm Tom Phipps and I am a second year sabbatical officer currently the Union Affairs Officer at Bristol SU and I am standing to be Student Trustee of NUS.

NUS needs a strong trustee board that puts student decision making at the heart. With a governance review under way it is so important that we manage to amplify the voices of students within our decision-making forums not weaken them.

Vote Tom for Student Trustee!


Ruth Titmuss

Hi, I'm Ruth, President of University of Plymouth Student Union, passionate about NUS.

I believe in an NUS that shows a united front, who works for students, every student and who is ahead of the times, not catching up.

Concentrating on the strategy of technology, partnerships and transparency I hope to contribute to the Trustee Board by being a forward- thinking student trustee who think's what's next not what's now.

Vote Ruth for a Reliable, Understanding, Trustworthy and Honest Trustee.
