Committee vacancies

Finance and resources Committee (FRC) 

Do you want to broaden your professional skills while helping to safeguard the profession?

The RCSLT Finance and Resources Committee (FRC) has a vacancy for an enthusiastic member to involve themselves in the governance of the RCSLT.

This is a chance to be part of the governance of the RCSLT, areas such as finance, investments, HR, contracts, performance management, audit, risk, facilities, heritage work and membership administration, among others. 

Although it is desirable rather than essential to have professional expertise in one or more of these fields, it is important to be able to assimilate information, think strategically and have a willingness to make decisions on behalf of the RCSLT.
The Committee meets four times a year in London. There is also an induction day and further training will be given if required. The role is unremunerated, but expenses are paid.  The term of office is for three years, starting from the date of approval of this application, to the AGM in 2022, with an opportunity to re-apply for a further three years.

We'd love to hear from you. 

Closing date: Monday 2 December 2019.
