Lay Director

by in Vacancies 8 October 2021

The British Acupuncture Council are seeking to recruit a lay director to join our Governing Board, replacing a director who retired at this year’s AGM having completed their term.

The Governing Board (GB) is made up of five practitioner members and four lay members and is ultimately accountable to the BAcC members.

Our directors are responsible for ensuring that the BAcC continues to flourish, for setting strategy and policy, and for overseeing the effective management of the BAcC through the chief executive and committees.

We are looking for professionals with director-level and board experience, who are clear strategic thinkers with sound judgement and the ability to think creatively. The GB conducted a skills analysis recently and determined that ideally we would like individuals with one or more of the following:

  • regulatory experience
  • risk management experience
  • some legal expertise

Additionally, we are looking for candidates with strong diplomacy and listening skills. The successful applicant will also have a keen interest in acupuncture and a passion for promoting it as a valid healthcare choice.

Meeting attendance remunerated (£250 per day).

Please see the full pack below for further details.

Application process

Please submit your CV and a covering letter to by 12pm on the 1 November 2021. Video interviews will take place on 12 November 2021 and we would be grateful if candidates could keep some availability on that day.
