Surrey County Council is looking for a local person to join its Independent Remuneration Panel (IRP), which makes recommendations to the Council on the type and level of allowances paid to County Councillors.
This usually involves a time commitment of up to 10 days during the course of any review (an allowance of £1,000 plus travel expenses is provided per review). The appointment will be for a period of three years, with the opportunity for re-appointment for a further three years.
About the role
The ideal candidate will be a respected and active member of the local community and representative of one of the Council’s stakeholder groups; for example social care, education, the voluntary sector or the local business community.
You do not necessarily need experience of local government and the roles of elected councillors, but should have an interest in public affairs.
The work involves carrying out a review of the existing allowances scheme, taking into account changes to the roles and responsibilities of County Councillors. The Panel will meet (typically one review per year) to gather information and prepare reports with recommendations for consideration by the County Council. This usually involves a time commitment of up to 10 days during the course of any review (an allowance of £1,000 plus travel expenses is provided per review). The appointment will be for a period of three years, with the opportunity for re-appointment for a further three years.
A briefing pack is available giving more details about what’s involved. If you are interested in joining the IRP and would like an informal discussion, please contact Elliot Sinclair (020 8541 9068), or email firstname.lastname@example.org
