Children’s Convenor and Tribunal Board


**For information only: Applications closed**. 


The Children’s Convenor and Tribunal Board is looking for three new board members.

The Board supports the work of the Children’s Convenor and the President of the Child, Youth and Community Tribunal.

(If you are keen to become a member of the Tribunal itself, they aren’t recruiting at the moment but you can register your interest here).

You don’t have to have formal qualifications or to have been on a board before. But you will need experience in a field related to the work of the Children’s Convenor or have skills that would assist the organisation.

“While you do not need to have Board or Committee experience, it’s important that we find people with the right knowledge and experience relevant to the functions of the Children’s Convenor, those willing to learn and, most importantly, those who share our values and commitment to children and young people across the Bailiwick.” says Gill Couch, board member.

Time commitment is 15-20 half-days per year, including four to six board meetings.
