RICS Selection Board – can you help?

If you are not a Chartered Surveyor but have an interest in helping a professional organisation identify the right people to improve its service delivery, the RICS would like to hear from you.

The RICS is looking for two people not associated with the Institution to join its Independent Appointments Selection Board (IASB). This will involve helping the organisation find the right people to help deliver the RICS business plan. Applicants will require experience in the appointment of senior individuals at board level for an international organisation, including undertaking best practice competence-based interviewing. Within the RICS, there is a now a greater degree of selection to the non-regulatory boards consisting of both RICS members and independents and IASB members are involved in the appointment of these positions, as well as selecting all the members of the Regulatory Boards. 

The initial appointment will be for up to three years and the Board will meet up to three times a year. Total commitment will be around 5-20 days, depending on the number of appointments. Independent non-executive board members will be entitled to receive a fee for attendance at meetings on a daily basis, currently £340 per day.

The closing date for applications is 4 October 2010, with interviews to be held at the beginning of November.
