A message from University of Portsmouth Students’ Union President Godfrey Atuahene Junior concerning the recruitment of UPSU’s new Chief Executive
UPSU is currently in the process of identifying an appropriate replacement for Daniel Palmer as the next Chief Executive of UPSU.
It would be perfectly understandable that during a time of huge change for UPSU (new CEO, new President/Vice Presidents and new Vice Chancellor) you may be nervous about the stability of the organisation. I wanted first of all to reassure you that we are taking every step we can to ensure a smooth transition and reduce disruptions, be that in our campaigning, charitable or commercial operations.
Of course part of ensuring such stability is getting the right person to take over as Chief Executive and as a membership-led organisation we believe it’s important that you are able to contribute to this process. As such, we have a email address so that you can contribute your thoughts on:
> The qualities and attributes which you believe are important for the next Chief Executive of UPSU to possess;
> What challenges and opportunities the new CEO and UPSU may have to deal with.
Please email – firstname.lastname@example.org
We will ensure that your suggestions are fed in to what we are confident will be a thorough, robust, and considered recruitment process. Please note we can’t guarantee a personal response to all suggestions and emails to this address cannot be used to arrange meetings or to ask questions to the new Chief Executive once they are in post.
But it will feed into both the search to ensure we have the right candidates and in informing the recruitment panel itself.
Please do forward this to all students
Thanks, and all the best
Godfrey Atuahene Junior
Students’ Union President
