Bury Council Standards Regime - Independent Person

The Localism Act 2011 confirmed the Council's continuing duty to promote and maintain high standards of conduct by Members and co-opted Members of the authority.

We are looking for three "Independent Persons" to work with our Standards Committee to help to ensure high standards of conduct in the Council and among elected Councillors within the Borough.

If you think you have the qualities to take on this challenging role, we would like to hear from you. You must be aged 18 or over and understand the Borough and some of the issues facing it. You should be impartial, have a good standing in the community, and support the Council's goals of being accountable, open, principled and committed to equal opportunities.

We are unable to consider anyone who is, or has been within the last five years, a member, co-opted member or officer of Bury Council or who is a relative or close friend of a Member, co-opted Member or officer of the Council. Preference will be given to applicants with experience and knowledge of the ethical framework and governance regime.

Independent Persons are entitled to a payment of £500 per annum. To find out more, please contact Leigh Webb, on 0161 253 5399, or email L.M.Webb@burv. You can also write to him at: The Town Hall, Knowsley Street, Bury BL9 0SW. You will be sent an information pack and application form, which you should complete and return by 14 November 2017._
