Join the governance team at RIBA to support our new committee structure. 

We have two part-time roles on offer which will both report into the Director of Governance & Legal Affairs and who will, between them, provide a full secretariat support to the following committees:

  • Audit & Risk Committee (standing committee, reporting to Board and Council)
  • Cultural Knowledge & Outreach Committee (Board committee) – with sub-committees and panels
  • Education Committee (Board committee) – with sub-committees and panels
  • Membership Committee (Board committee) – with sub-committees and panels
  • Nations & Regions Council Committee (Council committee)
  • Nominations Committee (standing committee of Council)
  • Remuneration Committee (standing committee of Board)
  • Practice & Policy Committee (Board committee) – with sub-committees and panels
  • Standards Committee (standing committee of Council)

The successful candidates will be the primary point of contact for all committee business and will work with the Director of Governance & Legal Affairs, the Board & Council Secretary, the Honorary Secretary, Committee Chairs and others to ensure the smooth running of all committee business across the RIBA.

The successful candidates must have;

  • Significant amount of relevant work experience, including providing secretariat support at either committee or board level.
  • An understanding of charity governance and of working with volunteers would be preferred.  For some committees it would be helpful if the committee secretary has an interest in the built environment and the architectural profession.
  • Experience of using Convene or similar board portals would be beneficial.  Both candidates will need to be highly effective at managing relationships with high profile stakeholders
