Minutes of the Appointments/Careers Board

Scope and Content

The Appointments Board was established by Council on 30 May 1934. Its membership comprised the vice-chancellor, the chairman of council and other members of other Council, academic staff and students, together with representatives of private employers. From 1946 the Ministry of Labour was also represented on the Board. The purpose of the Board was to exercise general managerial oversight of the University's Appointments Service including receiving reports of its activities. The Board had its own executive committee. In 1990 the Committee was renamed the Careers Service Board.
