Chair of the BBC Trust position advertised

The £110,000 a year position for BBC Trust Chair has been advertised today, to take over from Lord Patten who resigned as Chair on health grounds.

The job is for “three to four days per week”, the same as Lord Patten and is a contract for four years. One of the first tasks will be reviewing the BBC Charter which expires at the end of 2016.

Culture Secretary Sajid Javid said: “The BBC is a great British institution that entertains and educates while helping to showcase the best of British around the world. We need an exceptional individual to lead the Trust to get the best out of the BBC for licence fee payers.”

A shortlist of candidates will be interviewed over the summer and the Culture Secretary will meet all appointable candidates. The Government will then select a preferred candidate.

The preferred candidate will appear before the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee for pre-appointment scrutiny and the Government will then make its final decision.

The appointment process will be overseen by an independent Public Appointments Assessor, who will ensure the appointment complies with the Code of Practice of the Commissioner for Public Appointments.

Applications to be his successor must be submitted by 20 June.
