Two More Council Members Required11-September-2018
With the election of our two new learner governors in July, we now have 18 Council members (from a total of 20 potential places on the Council). Both remaining vacancies are appointed seats, rather than elected, and so we have now opened a further round of applications, where we are inviting suggestions of those would be useful additions to our governing body (but who are not employed by us). The term of office will be until March 2020.
We monitor skills and diversity categories among our Council members and we are currently under-represented in those with legal expertise and also those with private sector/business experience. We are however well represented in gender terms and are adequately populated in terms of language diversity. Our age profile is slanted towards the over 50 year olds, and we are 100% White European.
Those interested in applying should note that the above is a guide only and it shouldn't be seen as absolute or limiting in terms of nominating individuals who might be suitable. All that is required from an applicant is a CV and a brief covering letter, to reach our Company Secretary Stephen Thomas by 5pm on Wednesday 19th September. There will then be a short-listing and interview process.
If you'd like to discuss any aspect of this, please email Stephen Thomas or call him on 02920 235277. Good luck!
