HCPC Seeks Two Lay Members

HCPC - Health and Care Professions Council Lay Members

The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) is seeking to appoint two lay members to its Council.

Council members play a key role in setting strategy and policy and ensuring the HCPC fulfils its statutory duties and responsibilities. Candidates require experience in corporate governance, strategic planning and collective decision making and must have a good grasp of regulatory principles.

As ambassadors for the HCPC, the lay members will need the ability to form strong relationships and uphold the principles of transparency and accountability.

Candidates for this role must not be on the HCPC Register or engaged in practise, teaching, managing or researching in, one of the professions regulated by the HCPC. As a UK-wide regulator, HCPC encourages applications from individuals across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Elaine Buckley, Council Chair HCPC said:

“The role of the Lay Council Member is one that is highly valued by the HCPC Council and is extremely important for the effective governance of the organisation.

We are looking for candidates with a broad range of skills who can support the work of the HCPC whilst contributing a different perspective.

I look forward to working with the successful candidates who will be joining the Council next January.”

The deadline for applications is 9am on Monday 19 September and interviews will take place between 2 and 4 November 2016. The successful candidate will begin their new role from Monday 2 January 2017.
