This position is available to any current student from across the University of the Highlands and Islands partnership. It is a voluntary position for at least one year, with various benefits for those students wishing to develop their employability skills in a professional environment. 

Becoming a trustee of HISA is an enjoyable and exciting opportunity to make a difference to students' lives. The trustees play a vital role, volunteering their time to make important decisions about HISA’s work, with overall control of the charity and influence over how HISA staff and officers achieve their key strategic aims.

The Board of Trustees is made up of:
