Governor Committee and working groups

Our Council of Governors has established an Appointment Committee.

The Appointment Committee is chaired by Lynne Hunt, Trust Chair.  Membership is made up of Governors and the Trust Chair, and its role is to:

  • ensure that there is a formal, rigorous and transparent procedure for the selection of the candidates for office as Chair or Non-Executive Director of the Trust;
  • ensure that any search for candidates for the role of Chair or Non-Executive Director is conducted against objective criteria and with due regard for the benefits of diversity on the Board and the requirements of the Trust;
  • prepare and review the description of the role and capabilities required for the Non-Executive Directors, including the Chair;
  • agree the timetable and action plan for appointment;
  • identify and nominate candidates for the Chair or Non-Executive Director roles and making recommendations to the Council of Governors as to potential candidates for appointment as Chair or Non-Executive Directors, as the case may be;
  • regularly review, in conjunction with the Board of Directors’ Nominations & Remuneration Committee, the structure, size and composition of the Board of Directors; and
  • Consider and make recommendations to the Council of Governors as to the remuneration and allowances and other terms and conditions of office of the Chair and other Non-Executive Directors.
