    Care Quality Commission

Ref: GSe55687

We are the Care Quality Commission (the CQC), the independent regulator of health and adult social care services in England. Our aim is to make sure better care is provided for everyone, whether that's in hospital, in care homes, in people’s own homes, or elsewhere. Our work is demanding, and it is complex, calling for the highest standards of governance in all areas. We are currently going through a major transformation encompassing digital services and quality improvement initiatives, a significant change programme we must deliver while remaining alert to and keeping step with challenge and change in the wider health and care sector.

Our Audit & Corporate Governance Committee (the ACGC) is an independent sub-Committee of the CQC Board focused on audit (internal and external), finance and risk. We are now looking to appoint two Independent Members to play a key role in and add independent perspective to that Committee’s oversight.

We are looking for individuals with substantial board level experience in large, complex organisations, public or private sector, as well as broad understanding of the public-sector environment. You will have a strong background in audit, finance, risk, regulation, IT, or business processes, and be able to demonstrate an interest in the health and social care sector. Your rich experience of change and/or digital services, not to mention the challenges of governance and control in those areas, will be of considerable benefit to the CQC as we deliver our own programme of transformation, too. We are interested in excellence wherever it occurs, and in diversity in its widest sense.
