King's College London is seeking to appoint two new independent co-opted members to join the Audit, Risk & Compliance Committee and the Estates Strategy Committee, to serve for an initial period of three years (renewable) joining as soon as possible. These posts offer a rewarding, challenging and stimulating opportunity to be involved in the governance of a world-leading university.
The vision of King's is to make the world a better place, and since its foundation in 1829, students and staff have dedicated themselves in the service of society. King's is one of the top 10 UK universities in the world (QS World University Rankings 2020) and the fourth oldest university in England. Based in the heart of London, we have over 31,000 students and 8,500 staff.
Audit, Risk & Compliance Committee (ARCC)
The ARCC plays an important role in reviewing the university's audit arrangements and providing the College Council with assurance that King's has effective risk management, robust internal controls, and governance in place, as well as having appropriate regard for Value for Money and effective structures for managing statutory and regulatory compliance.
Currently we are searching for a qualified accountant with high levels of financial expertise, and an interest in higher education.
Estates Strategy Committee (ESC)
The ESC takes the lead in the formulation and review of the College's estates strategy. It considers the priorities for the development and improvement of the estate, makes recommendations in relation to proposals for the acquisition and disposal of any part of the estate, and keeps under review the allocation of space across the College.
We are looking for someone with a professional background in estates development, estate operations or facilities management. We are also interested in broad generalist skills gained at board level, ideally with knowledge of higher education and its interface with the NHS.
King's is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and through these appointments it is our clear stated aim to develop candidate pools that include applicants from all backgrounds and communities. We particularly encourage applications from women, people from black and minority ethnic communities, the LGBT+ community and from disabled people.
