We’re recruiting for Board Committee Members

In December 2018, Privy council approved changes to IOSH’s committee structure so that it will be able to reflect best governance practice and help us to continue the modernisation of our organisation.

We have since implemented four new Board committees, each chaired by a Board of Trustees member. We are now recruiting a non-IOSH member for each Board Committee, who will provide impartial advice and support.

Being a Board Committee Member is a responsible position where you will support the Board in fulfilling their roles and responsibilities to the Institution. These roles provide a great opportunity for someone looking to expand their experience in a non-executive position.

Applications close 28 May 2019. Find out more below about each committee, role and how to apply.
