The Bar Standards Board (BSB) is the independent regulator for barristers and specialised legal services businesses in England and Wales.  We now seek to appoint two members for our Governance, Risk and Audit (GRA) Committee who will work with others to ensure the Board's corporate governance standards and internal controls are maintained. The GRA Committee keeps under review, and advises the Board on, all matters relating to the risk management framework and the BSB's internal audit function.

You will bring experience of providing non-executive oversight of the governance, risk and/or audit processes and controls in an appropriately complex organisation. You will be able to help us achieve our aims, understanding what it takes to work effectively in a team that holds others to account in a constructive way. Combined with a track record of building productive relationships with a range of stakeholders, you will also appreciate the distinction between management and governance. 

The GRA committee meets eight times a year, in the evening. Preparation and meeting attendance usually takes a half day for each meeting. One appointment is to commence from June, whilst the second appointment is from 1 January 2019.​
