Charity Tribunal begins recruitment
Applications close today in the first round of recruitment for the Charity Tribunal, the body that will provide a low-cost appeals process against Charity Commission decisions from next January.
The tribunal president and five legally qualified members are being recruited in the first round. The president, who must be a solicitor or barrister with at least two years’ service in a judicial office, will be paid £123,200. Panel members will receive £450 per day.
The Judicial Appointments Commission expects to begin recruiting seven lay members with knowledge and experience of the third sector in September.
