What is it?

Student Directors of TU Dublin SU CLG  

Because of our status as a CLG, we are required to have a Board that consist of directors. A company director is someone appointed to manage and run the company on the behalf of the members. Directors have duties under both company law and the company’s constitution, and they meet around 8-10 times in an academic year. At the meetings, the Board of directors discuss and make decisions on the current issues about the operational side of the Students’ Union, and they also have committees who discuss the aspects of Finance, Audit and Risk; HR and Remuneration and Nominations of directors selected externally to the student body

Who can be a Director of TU Dublin SU CLG?

The directors of TU Dublin SU CLG are the five overall full-time elected officers, five external directors and four students appointed by Student Council. Student Directors are appointed by campus as follows: one from Blanchardstown, one from Tallaght and 2 from City Campus. Student Directors must be registered students of TU Dublin for the duration of their term (1st July– 30th June). All Student Directors for Academic year 2023-2024 have been elected. 

What is the benefit of becoming a Student Director of TU Dublin SU CLG?

The Directors of TU Dublin SU CLG get a unique chance to see how a company is run. They get to work with a team that has expertise on managing a company, and make important decisions on the operational side of the Union (e.g. recruitment and finances). Student Directors also receive a meeting fee of €50 – so these are paid positions. Student Director positions are a brilliant opportunity especially for students who are interested in how a company decision-making process works! Further, you do not have to have any prior experience about this as we (and the external members) will guide you throughout the year.
