Organisation: The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA)
Role: Independent committee member
Salary: Unremunerated
Time Commitment: approx. 3 meetings a year

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is a global professional membership body driving excellence in architecture. The organisation serves its members and society in order to deliver better buildings and places, stronger communities and a sustainable environment. 

The RIBA delivers key services to members, as well as advancing architecture more generally – through its awards, library, gallery, public programme and website.  Being inclusive, ethical, environmentally aware and collaborative underpins all that the RIBA does.

Following an extensive review, a new governance structure has been approved for the organisation which has seen the creation of a new Board of Trustees who take over responsibility from the existing, much larger, Council for the oversight of the executive management of the RIBA.

The new RIBA Board is looking to appoint two Independent committee members to its Remuneration Committee. The Remuneration Committee (RemCom) oversees the RIBA’s remuneration policy and the remuneration of the executive, the President and any other trustees.

Ideally, you will demonstrate a strong interest in architecture and the impact that the RIBA and its members have in the world. You will evidence clear critical thinking and an ability to challenge opinions and be available to commit to the time as required by the Board of Trustees - which will be approximately three meetings a year. You will have a collaborative, empathetic and diplomatic style and an enthusiasm to add value to the Remcom committee.
