Overview

RICS is a global professional body that sets the standard for, and regulates, 125,000 members and over 10,000 regulated firms working in the valuation, management and development of land, real estate, construction and infrastructure. Where those members or firms fall short of the standards set, RICS takes appropriate regulatory action, including, in most serious cases, taking members or firms to disciplinary panels.

These panels of three are formed from the Conduct and Appeal Committee, to hear cases against members and firms brought by RICS and appeals of previous decisions. The Committee makes decisions independent of RICS and panels consist of both RICS members, and lay non-members. This approach to RICS’ disciplinary regime ensures that the public can have confidence that cases against members and firms are heard without favour or bias.

RICS is now seeking to appoint RICS professional members to the Committee, particularly from the Asia Pacific Region region along with Lay members who live and work in the Asia Pacific region to the Committee.

Experience of committee, tribunal or disciplinary roles is desirable for candidates, but not essential, along with experience of making decisions in the public interest. Candidates must be able to demonstrate outstanding communication and analytical skills and judgement, together with the ability to work effectively with others and make reasoned but often very challenging decisions.

Collaborative yet able to exercise independence of judgement, individuals must also possess high levels of integrity, patience, resilience, confidence and professionalism in dealing with pressured, unpredictable and sensitive situations

The appointments are for a fixed term of 3 years and remuneration is paid at a daily rate of £340 plus reasonable travel and subsistence.

Members who are appointed from other regions outside of the UK, will ordinarily participate in oral hearings held in the UK by way of video conferencing facilities, but on occasion may be expected to sit on Panels convened in RICS’ Birmingham, and on occasion, London office.

The successful candidates will ideally take up the role from Summer 2018.
