Job Role

The JCCP seeks to appoint a new Trustee and Chair of the Council’s Policy and Resources Committee.

A year on from the receipt of PSA accreditation the JCCP has renewed its accreditation and also its efforts to remain the register of choice for non-surgical practitioners. The new Trustee role is pivotal to the successful governance of the JCCP and the development of its Practitioner and Education and Training Registers.

The post will be pivotal in supporting the JCCP’s journey to improve patient safety and awareness of the risks associated with non-surgical cosmetic and hair restoration treatments, and the need to encourage members of the public to select practitioners who are on an approved register when seeking treatment.

If you have the skills to champion this and to act corporately, whilst bringing your professional skills to support JCCP, then we want to hear from you.

We are seeking a Lay Member who is financially qualified to be our new Chair of the JCCP Policy and Resources Committee. Broader experience of acting as a Trustee of a charitable body, the development of policies and procedures and IT would also be very helpful adjunctive skills.

We are seeking an individual with real drive and determination to complement our current Board to lead us through the next stage of our development.
