The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) is seeking two new lay members to join its Council.
The Council is the governing body of the organisation which sets the strategic direction of the NMC, as well as overseeing the work of senior staff. Council members are expected to meet six times a year.
‘These are challenging and rewarding roles influencing an important public protection agenda in a sector that is changing at a pace we have not seen before,’ said the chair of the NMC council, Professor Dame Janet Finch. ‘The Council has set an ambitious strategy to be a dynamic, innovative, leading regulator. We have already begun an exciting programme of transformation to help us achieve this and deliver better value for money.’
The Council must comprise six nurses or midwives and six lay members, and have representation from all four UK countries. The vacancies have become available following the departure of Quinton Quayle and Amerdeep Somal, who had served as members of the council since May 2013.
‘As a Council member you will play a vital role in shaping and delivering our plans,’ added Professor Finch. ‘We are looking for individuals of outstanding calibre with experience and expertise particularly in large scale organisational change either in the public or private sector.
Applications for the role will close on 6 February 2017. A full information pack and details of how to apply are available at www.odgers.com/60820.
