Arbiter sought for CIPR disciplinary process

In January 2014, the CIPR is seeking to appoint an Arbiter from within its membership work within its new disciplinary structure. Following recent changes to the CIPR Charter Regulations which bring the Institute’s disciplinary processes into line with recent developments in best practice, the Arbiter’s role will be to consider objections raised about the way in which any complaints may have been handled. 

Members and Fellows are invited to apply for the post, which will be appointed in January by CIPR Council.

Members interested in applying to serve in this capacity are encouraged to view the background and person specification (PDF, opens in a new window). Details of the recent changes to the Charter Regulations, which come into effect from 1 January 2014, are available now on our website.

To apply, members should email a CV with a cover note or an account of how they meet the person specification to Phil Morgan by 9 January. Please include at least one reference who will be willing to validate the content of the application, should this be necessary. They should not be a friend or family member.
