Representatives wanted to sit on Members' Allowance Panel

Mon, 01 Jun 2020

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is seeking to appoint independent and impartial representatives to advise the council on the allowances payable to its elected members.

People who live or work in the East Riding are being invited to become a part of the Members' Allowance Panel, a small independent panel which usually meets between four and five times a year to make recommendations to the council.

Anyone who is interested should also have experience in either:

  • local government
  • business
  • trade unions
  • academic institutions
  • voluntary sector.

While the position is voluntary, an allowance of £49 per meeting and the reimbursement of reasonable travelling and subsistence expenses, will be payable to successful candidates.

Anyone who would like to apply should email their CV to Sarah Baxter, Democratic Services Manager at East Riding of Yorkshire Council - sarah.baxter@eastriding.gov.uk or via post to Sarah Baxter, Democratic Services Manager, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Cross Street, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU17 9BA.

The closing date for applications is Friday, 26 June 2020
