The Professional Paralegal Register (‘PPR’) is a voluntary regulatory scheme for paralegals. We are recruiting a new Chair to the Register Regulatory Committee (‘RRC’ or the ‘Committee’) to take forward the expansion of the PPR under the umbrella of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (‘CILEX’). CILEX acquired the PPR in January 2023.
We are looking to appoint a new Chair to ensure the work of the Committee is undertaken in accordance with all applicable regulatory rules. The Chair will offer critical and innovative insight into how we can best develop and will play a vital role in the direction and development of a national paralegal register.
We are looking for a confident leader with experience of chairing boards or committees. Applicants will ideally have complaints handling, adjudication, and/or arbitration experience. We also welcome applicants with regulatory experience, particularly relating to the regulation of legal or other professionals.
Your leadership will also ensure other members of the RRC are engaged and valued within our organisation.
The Chair is appointed on a voluntary basis. Meetings of the RRC normally take place online. However, reasonable travel expenses can be claimed in relation to any necessary travel.
Please provide a covering letter explaining why you are interested in becoming our Chair and the skills and experience you would bring to the role. Suitable applicants will be interviewed via Zoom by a panel consisting of the current Chair and members of the RRC. The deadline for applications is 21 November, and interviews will take place on 1 December 2023, time TBC.
