Applicants should explain how they meet the requirements of the competency framework set out in the information for applicants.

The role is remunerated, with a time commitment of approximately 15 days per year, including attendance at quarterly meetings in London in March, June, September and December with travel and subsistence covered. The initial term is four years. Further details are in the application pack on the GCC website.

The GCC aims to be as diverse as the public it protects. We welcome applications from people from diverse backgrounds with experience in the public, commercial and/or charity sectors, regardless of sex, age, disability, race, faith, sexual orientation, marriage or civil partnership status, pregnancy and maternity status or gender reassignment.
