The government might expand the board of the Big Lottery Fund by up to two members
The Cabinet Office has advertised for up to three new members of the board, which has nine members, to replace the vice-chair, Anna Southall, who is coming to the end of her term.
Southall was appointed acting chair of the BLF after the former chair Sir Clive Booth left in November 2010. Peter Ainsworth, the current chair, took up the role in June 2011.
The new positions on the BLF board will pay £218 a day with a "minimum average" time commitment of one day a month, the advertisement says.
The Cabinet Office was unable to confirm why it might increase the size of the board.
