RSHom Member of Professional Conduct Committee – Volunteer opportunity
We are currently seeking an RSHom Member to join our Professional Conduct Committee (PCC) on a purely voluntary basis. Would you be willing to support the Society by becoming a member of this Committee?
The Committee supports the work of the Professional Standards Department in the development and maintenance of a robust and transparent complaints process. It also advises on guidance to be given to members and, when necessary, contributes to the revision of Professional Standards Department documents.
Members may also be asked to form a Preliminary Investigation Panel – this is the initial step in the complaints process and convenes only when a formal complaint is received.
Committee meetings generally take place via Zoom on the 3rd or 4th Thursday, every two months at 8.30am.
Here’s what current and past committee members have said about their time on PCC:
“Being a member of the PCC has been both mentally stimulating and rewarding. I joined the team over five years ago, and during that time I have gained a greater knowledge and understanding of how our organisation operates, this in itself has been an extremely interesting experience. We are involved in discussions on ethics and codes of conduct, seeing if any adjustments or improvements need to be made, thereby ensuring and maintaining our high standards of professionalism. We look at complaints and provide direction and support to fellow Homeopaths, as well as giving a hearing ear to any concerns raised by members of the public. And as a bonus, the time commitment is minimal, meeting just once every two months over zoom for one hour (but often less), thereby placing no drain on time or resources.”
“I enjoyed my time on the PCC. The work is interesting and important for the Society’s membership. The committee members are very dedicated and enjoyable to work with. The monthly meetings are well-run and are rarely over half an hour in length.”
Interested applicants who wish to discuss the post should contact the Professional Conduct Supervisor firstname.lastname@example.org or Professional Standards Lead email@example.com from whom the committee’s terms of reference and the person specification are available.
Applicants should write, providing their CV and supporting statement outlining their experience to: firstname.lastname@example.org
