GOC seeks registrant Council member

We are recruiting for a registrant member to join our Council to replace David Parkins, who comes to the end of his highly successful eight-year tenure as a registrant Council member in March 2024. 

We are looking for someone who can think critically and strategically and will be able to express their point of view and provide objective advice. The successful candidate will join eleven other Council members as charitable trustees and work together to shape our future strategic direction. 

The role requires a time commitment of two to three days per month and includes remuneration of £13,962 per year, as well as travel and subsistence expenses. 

If you are passionate about general healthcare and regulation or think you can contribute to our work to protect the public, we encourage you to apply. 

We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, and we would also particularly welcome applications from individuals who are disabled and from diverse ethnic backgrounds as these are currently under-represented on our Council and committees. 

For more information about the role and how to apply, see the Candidate pack and application. If you have any questions, please email appointment@optical.org quoting reference GOC03/23. 

The deadline to apply is midnight on Sunday 19 November 2023.
