Make your mark on IOSH's policies and budgets

Did you know the IOSH Board of Trustees is supported by four Board Committees?

Recent changes to our structure mean we are working to Governance best practice, and our Board is supported by expertise from members and non-members in some key areas.

Our four Board Committees are:

  • Finance and Investment
  • Audit and Risk
  • Performance and Development
  • Policy and Standards.

We are currently recruiting for two IOSH members to join our Finance and Investment Committee and the Performance and Development Committee. This is a valuable opportunity to get involved with IOSH Governance, supporting decisions on budgets, policies and other factors affecting IOSH members.

The Finance and Investment Committee scrutinises financial strategies and make recommendations to the Board of Trustees on branch budgets, reports and policies. They consider, approve and evaluate significant investments made by IOSH.

"After previous experience volunteering on my local branch committee, I wanted a new challenge. This role really appealed to me. I'm not a professional accountant or investor, but I have worked in senior management roles so I know how organisations are run. I am able to provide the committee with the insight of an IOSH member. The role also benefits me as I can get a deeper understanding of accounts." 

(Jeff Fowler, Finance and Investment Committee)

The Performance and Development Committee provides crucial input on the development of our Networks and IOSH’s relationships with key stakeholders. They will have a valuable role in the membership recruitment and retention strategy following our membership survey.

"I joined the committee at the start of 2019 as the profession has helped me for over 20 years and I wanted to give something back and see how it can continue to evolve. It is an opportunity to help shape the future for our members. If members are looking for that chance to give back to the profession and have a wealth of experience of OSH and also how organisations and governance is run, I'd recommend this as a very fulfilling role."

(Arlette Anderson, Performance and Development Committee)

By working with IOSH for just a few days a year, you could play an influential role in the Institution’s future and gain valuable experience in a non-executive role.

Applications close on 13 November 2019, with the roles taking effect in early 2020. Members can visit the Board Committees page to find out more about the roles and how to apply.
