Lay members, Standards Board
A unique opportunity to take part in developing our standards
We are the UK’s leading membership charity campaigning for healthy, humane and sustainable food, farming and land use. Our organic standards are pioneering and lead the way in the global organic movement. They are supported by robust governance from the Standards Board.
We are now recruiting for lay members of the Standards Board to replace two of the three current lay members who will reach the end of their term during 2013/14.
Successful candidates will:
- Have a strong interest in the organic principles of health, ecology, fairness and care;
- Be able to articulate the consumer or citizen perspective from an informed position;
- Have experience of working in committees to achieve consensus.
The Standards Board meets two to three times a year, usually in Bristol or London. This is a voluntary position with reasonable travel and subsistence expenses reimbursed.
Terms of reference for the Standards Board and further information about the role are available from Christine Williams, Standards Executive Assistant at email@example.com. Applicants should submit a CV and covering letter, describing why they are interested in the role and how they fulfil the person specification, to reach us by 28 March 2013. We will interview on 9 or 10 May 2013 to enable one lay member to be in place for the Standards Board meeting on 20 June 2013.
