Committee vacancies


Help shape the future of RCSLT leadership

Closing date: 6 December 2021

We’re looking for three members with an interest in enhancing equality, diversity and inclusion in the RCSLT to join our new Nominations Committee.

At the RCSLT annual general meeting (AGM) in November, members voted to replace our system of elections with an appointment process.

The new committee will be responsible to the Board for developing a diverse and representative pipeline of future leaders, advertising roles effectively, and ensuring the RCSLT has the right mix of skills within our governance structures at Board and committee level to secure the organisation’s future.

We’re looking for members who are passionate about the profession and keen to help create a more diverse professional body to join the committee.

Who can apply

You’ll need to be:

  • A full RCSLT member
  • With one or more protected characteristics, such as a member who is Black, Asian or who has a minority ethnic background, an LGBTQ+ member, or a member with a disability. This is not an exhaustive list. Please see a full list of protected characteristics here (you’ll be joined by three current trustees)
  • Passionate about your profession and keen to create a more diverse and inclusive professional body

How to apply

If you would like to apply for one of the three available roles, we would love to hear from you.

To apply, send an email or brief video (up to 500 words/two minutes) setting out:

  • A little about your work and personal background, including how you meet the criteria above
  • Why you are interested in joining the committee
  • What you hope to contribute to the RCSLT and the profession by being involved
  • Confirmation that you can make the needed time commitment (this will mean attending virtual meetings several times a year, and reading the meeting papers in advance. The time commitment is likely to be a few hours a month initially and reduce after the committee is more established.)

Email your application to by 6 December.

We’ll want to talk to shortlisted candidates virtually on 15 December.
