About us

We are the professional body dedicated to building public trust in the insurance and financial planning professions. Our strapline Standards. Professionalism. Trust. embodies our commitment to driving confidence in the power of professional standards: competence, integrity and care for the customer. We deliver that commitment through relevant learning, insightful leadership and an engaged membership. Our 122,000 members commit to high professional standards by maintaining continuing professional development and adhering to a published ethical code.

About the role

Our Audit and Risk Committee (ARC) ensures the Institute operates effective processes of financial reporting and control and of risk management, so we are equipped to carry out our governance responsibilities. Our current Board Member and Committee Chair is due to come to the conclusion of their tenure, and thus we now seek to appoint an experienced non-executive Director to join the team. Being a Member of the Board of the CII and overseeing the Committee to which you are appointed as Chair, you will be able to bring considerable value.

About you

You will have ideally held a non-executive director role in a large complex organisation. Although we are open to which sector you may have gained your experience in, our preference would be for someone who is financially qualified.

You will appreciate the duties of a board member as distinct from those of a member of the executive and be capable of providing both support and constructive challenge to Board and Committee colleagues as well as the CII’s Executive.

You will have the opportunity to join the CII at an important time, as we enter year two of our 5-year strategic plan which sets out our six strategic themes of excellent member experience; highest professional standards; sector thought leadership; world-class learning; digital first; and sustainable institute. We, therefore, welcome your demonstration of the relevance of your experience in one of these six themes.

If this sounds like you and you are excited about making a substantial impact, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
