Member of Independent Review Panel vacancies

 Are you interested in how Local Government works and what Councillors are paid?


We are seeking applications from people living or working with the following Local Government areas – Bromsgrove, Malvern Hills, Redditch, Worcester or Wychavon to fill vacancies on the Independent Remuneration Panel.



Member of the Independent Review Panel


The Panel recommends to each District Council in Worcestershire the level of allowances to be paid to Councillors and other non-elected people such as co-opted members. If asked, it can also be the Remuneration Panel for certain allowances for Town and Parish Councillors. It current meets up to 4 times a year for 2-3 hours at a time.


Although some knowledge of local government would be an advantage it is not essential as the Panel receives support and advice from council officers. Panel members should be able to approach issues with an open mind and undertake applicable research.



You cannot be a member of the Panel if:


- You are a member of any of the local authorities (District or Parish) in respect of which the Panel makes recommendations


- You would be disqualified from being a Councillor of any local authority.



The term of office is four years from September 2018 which may be renewed. Travel and subsistence expenses are reimbursed, including child care if appropriate. An honorarium of £700 per year is also paid.
