External Member advertising


The Chair updated Members on the progress of the new advertising process for External Members on the Board which way underway. The Chair stated that the advertisement would run until Friday, but a great calibre of people had already applied (approximately 100 expressions of interest), and the Nominations Committee would be reviewing candidates at its next meeting. It was hoped that recommendations would be ready for the Board to consider at its March meeting.


Members were supportive of this new process which opened the net much further in attracting talent for the Board. Members were encouraged to share the advert on social media and the Chair and Managing Director noted that they were happy to have informal chats with anyone who might be considering applying.
