Applicants will be assessed against these criteria. If there is a high volume of applicants, preliminary sifting will be done using only the first criteria.
You will be reimbursed for any travel and subsistence expenses you necessarily incur while on official OfS business at the appropriate rate.

You will be expected to demonstrate high standards of corporate and personal conduct.
The successful candidates will be asked to subscribe to a Code of Conduct for members of the board, and must confirm that you have a sound understanding of, and commitment, to the principles of public life.
