BSB seeks up to two new barrister Board members

21 February 2019

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) has begun the process to recruit up to two new barrister Board members.

The successful applicants will work with others on the Board to govern and oversee the regulator's work. There are up to fifteen members of the Board - with a majority of lay members, including the Chair, and practising barrister members, of whom one is the Vice Chair.

The Board seeks applications for the current vacancies from a wide variety of practice backgrounds. It would particularly welcome applications from those at the employed Bar or practising outside London or the south-east, who would complement the skills and experience of its current Board members.

The closing date for applications is 9am on Monday 25 March 2019. Interviews will be held in central London on Tuesday 16 April 2019.

More information about the vacancies and the application process can be found in the Candidate Pack.
