Commission seeks legal expert

The Charity Commission is advertising for a legal expert to join its board at a daily rate of £350.

The chosen candidate will succeed Lindsay Driscoll, who joined as legal commissioner in 2003 and has agreed to stay on until a replacement is found.

The regulator must have at least two lawyers on its nine-strong board. Driscoll and Simon Wethered currently fill the two roles.

Wethered was one of five new commissioners appointed in July after a recruitment campaign designed to increase the board’s diversity.

The new recruit will be expected to work between four and six days a month and could therefore earn up to £25,200 a year from the part-time post.

A commission spokesman said £350 was the set daily rate for board members.
