Vacancy Description

The Architects Registration Board (ARB) was established by an Act of Parliament – the Architects Act 1997 (the “Act”) – and is the statutory regulator of architects in the UK.

ARB’s statutory responsibilities are contained in the Act, and cover six main areas:
• Prescribing the qualifications needed to become an architect in the UK
• Keeping the UK Register of Architects
• Ensuring that architects meet our standards for conduct and practice
• Investigating complaints about an architect’s conduct or competence
• Making sure that only people on our register offer their services as an architect
• Acting as the UK’s competent authority for architects

The purpose of the Remuneration and Appointments Committee is to ensure that the remuneration and reward package offered to staff, non-executive, Board members and advisers is reviewed and amended appropriately. The Committee also monitors the recruitment, annual review process and extension of appointments for advisers as well as advising the Board about the recruitment and appointment of statutory committee members. The Committee acts in a scrutiny and advisory capacity, and has no executive powers.

Sharing our values and vision you will bring your expertise and experience to help support the Board and Executive Team in ensuring ARB attracts and retains skilled and competent people to the organisation.

Closing date: Monday 7 October at 9.30am
