Wokingham Borough Council is looking to recruit an additional member for its independent remuneration panel.
The Local Authorities (Members’ Allowances) Regulations 2003 allow local authorities to establish and maintain an independent remuneration panel to be responsible for the monitoring of the members’ allowance scheme and to make recommendations to the council regarding the scheme.
Members of the independent remuneration panel must not be an elected member or a member of any committees of the authority and must also not be disqualified from becoming a member of the authority.
The post is on a voluntary basis and the term of the appointment is three years from the date of appointment. It is envisaged that the initial commitment is likely to involve four to five meetings during March to September, although this might vary depending on workload.
If you would like to know more about the position and/or be provided with an application form, please contact the council’s democratic services team on (0118) 974 6059 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application forms must be received by democratic services before Friday 2 December.
