We want the Council to reflect the diversity of our communities and the expertise of the professions we regulate. We know that drawing on a broader range of knowledge, experience and insight will help us make better decisions. We are keen to hear from people with the right expertise and skills whatever your background. If you need any help or adjustments to carry out the role, we are happy to do that.

Set out below are the five competencies we will use to assess candidates. These will help you decide if you have the right qualities to be our new Chair.

You will need to explain in your supporting statement how your expertise, experience, knowledge, and skills match the five competencies above. Your statement should include specific and detailed examples to demonstrate how you meet each of the competencies – what you personally did and the outcomes you achieved. These examples can be from any aspects of your life or work.

We will assess your application against the competencies at every stage of the selection process.

The competencies have been extracted from the full role and person specification which is set out here.
