The Security Industry Authority (SIA) – the Regulator for the private security industry which provides a critical public service by helping to reduce criminality while raising standards and recognising quality service delivered across the sector – is now seeking to recruit two new non-executive directors.
As a member of the Authority, the successful candidates will contribute to the overall strategic direction and corporate oversight of the organisation ensuring, in tandem with other members, that the Executive Team is held to account for discharging its duties effectively and to the highest possible standards.
They will also work with the chair and other Authority members in setting the strategic direction of the SIA and ensuring that the Authority discharges its statutory duties in line with the requirements of the Private Security Industry Act 2001, overseeing the timely production of realistic and costed business and forward plans.
In addition, the appointees will chair and participate in Authority Sub-Committees, oversee the work of the CEO in managing the organisation and its delivery programme and play a key role in representing the Board and the SIA in communications with key stakeholders.
These are three year appointments with the possibility of re-appointment. The remuneration is set at £9,160 per annum based on an expected time commitment of 32 days’ attendance. The successful candidates will be required to attend meetings in London and regionally.
Applicants should have Board-level or equivalent experience, a thorough understanding of issues arising from delivering services and business improvements within a sensitive environment and an understanding of issues relating to the regulation of the private security industry or a similar sector.
