Committee Vacancies

Independent member of the Audit and Risk Committee

The General Chiropractic Council (GCC) wishes to appoint an independent member to its Audit and Risk Committee with effect from 21 June 2019. This follows the retirement of the current independent member. It is an interesting and rewarding role for a qualified finance professional. The role is remunerated and a commitment of 4-6 days per year is expected, including the attendance at three meetings of the Committee held in central London.

  2. Able to work in a way that demonstrates this commitment and to communicate this enthusiasm to others.
