The Bar Standards Board (BSB) is seeking to appoint a second Independent Reviewer to provide effective independent assurance to the BSB’s Governance, Risk and Audit Committee (GRA) that the regulatory decision-making functions of the BSB are operating in line with the agreed procedures. Their role will be to work alongside the current Independent Reviewer, Velia Soames, to provide an independent review mechanism for decisions taken on individual cases, primarily in relation to the outcomes of the assessment of reports to the BSB of potential professional misconduct and subsequent decisions on whether to pursue enforcement or supervisory action following a formal investigation. 

For more information on how to apply, please review the candidate pack. Candidates should provide a covering letter outlining how they meet the competencies as set out in the role description, together with a CV, supporting details form and equality and diversity monitoring form (optional). Applications close at 9am on Monday 11 July via BSBapplications@BarStandardsBoard.org.uk.
