HEFCE is keen to recruit new members from education, business and the professions, as well as to enhance the diversity of the membership of the committees. HEFCE welcomes applications from under-represented groups including women, disabled people and people from an ethnic minority background.

Please obtain details of these positions from the appropriate committee contact:

These are fixed-term appointments and HEFCE pays attendance fees and expenses. Applications should address the specification and must include the equal opportunities monitoring form.

Please send a one-page application statement to the appropriate committee e-mail address by midnight on 11 May 2011.
