NERC Management Board - Membership vacancy

10 January 2019

NERC is looking for an independent part-time non-executive director to join two other non-executive directors on the NERC Management Board (NMB). The NMB supports the NERC Executive Chair in the day-to-day management of NERC.

Ideally with experience of management within a large, complex organisation and an interest in environmental or other sciences, you should be able to demonstrate that you have the skills and experience to help NERC and NMB improve their performance.

In return, as well as offering the opportunity to develop your skills and experience in a new setting, we offer a remuneration package of £9,000 per annum, where eligible, together with reasonable travel and subsistence costs (in line with organisational policies) for carrying out the role. The appointment is for a period of three years in the first instance, which may be extended subject to annual performance review.

The closing date for the receipt of applications is 12:00 on 18 February 2019.

Due to an unexpected delay the shortlisting meeting is now taking place on 22 March 2019.

Interviews will be held in London on 10-11 April 2019.

The successful candidate will be expected to attend their first meeting on 21 May or 25 June 2019 to facilitate a handover of responsibilities.
