Vacancy - Chair of the Governance and Financial Management Panel

Financial management, resilience and sustainability are at the core of public sector finance, following a number of years of continued reduced resources. Do you want to be at the core of CIPFA’s work on supporting the sector on these key parts of accountability and governance?

CIPFA has a vacancy for the Chair of the Governance and Financial Management Panel. This Panel is integral to CIPFA’s work on governance and financial management, which will include the internationalisation of CIPFA’s new Financial Management Code. It is also responsible for responding to initiatives to strengthen governance and financial management in public services.

There are normally two to three Panel meetings per year (as appropriate to the Panel’s objectives and workplans for the year). The meetings last for approximately half a day. The Chair would be anticipated to chair relevant conferences and represent the Panel.

For more details please consider the person specification and/or contact the secretary of the Panel for an informal discussion.

If you think that you are the ideal candidate please send your brief letter of application together with your CV to myself at by Friday 17th January 2020. Successful candidates will be invited for interview in the end of January early February.

The panel meets three times a year.
