National Chair – We are looking for an outstanding individual to lead the IMB operation through a period of internal reform and change; and at a time when strengthened independent scrutiny is an important part of the Government’s prison safety and reform programme.
The recent White Paper on Prison Safety and Reform set out plans to ‘strengthen the governance arrangements and accountability for IMBs, to support them in providing high quality scrutiny’ and the successful candidate will work closely with the Deputy Director IMB Secretariat lead to put the new governance arrangements and processes in place.
The National Chair will be responsible for leading the Management Board and IMB members to ensure that IMBs effectively, efficiently and independently discharge their statutory and other functions, providing high quality support and challenge.
The Head of the Secretariat will be a member of the Management Board and will be task managed by the Chair in accordance with directions set by the National Chair and Management Board.
