The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) is seeking to appoint one registrant member 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 strategic planning and collective decision making and a good grasp of regulatory principles. As ambassadors for the HCPC, they will need the ability to form strong relationships and uphold the principles of transparency and accountability.
Candidates for this role must be on the HCPC Register and 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:
"Maintaining a UK wide perspective has always been of great importance to the HCPC. In addition, we have been fortunate to have a Council with a wide range of expertise and a shared commitment to delivering protection for the public. I look forward to working with the new registrant member who will be joining the Council in the New Year."
The recruitment is overseen by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA) and the final decision rests with the Privy Council.
The deadline for applications is 21 September and interviews will take place between 19 and 23 October 2015. The successful candidate will begin their new role from 1 January 2016.
