Wokingham Borough Council is looking to recruit members for its independent remuneration panel.
The Local Authorities (Members’ Allowances) Regulations 2003 provide for 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 of the Authority or a member of any committees of the Authority and must also not be disqualified from becoming a Member of the Authority.
We have a number of vacancies on the panel. The posts are on a voluntary basis and the terms of the appointments are either three or four 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 positions and/or be provided with an application form, please contact the Council’s Democratic Services Section on
(0118) 974 6059 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application Forms must be received in Democratic Services by 18 February 2019.
