New independent member for the Standards Committee - January 2016

Gwynedd Council is looking for a lay person to serve as an independent member on its Standards Committee. We are looking for someone with:

  • Listening skills
  • Ability to understand and weigh up evidence
  • Ability to come to an objective view and explain that view by reference to the evidence
  • Team working skills
  • Respect for others and an understanding of diversity issues
  • Discretion
  • Personal integrity

The Standards Committee promotes and maintains standards of conduct of members of Gwynedd Council and the county’s community and town councils. 

The ability to speak Welsh will be considered to be an advantage, and the need to achieve a balance of skills, qualities and expertise on the Committee, as well as the need to represent the community as a whole and achieve a geographical spread will be taken into account.

The Committee usually meets about 4 times a year (although some additional meetings may be held as necessary). An allowance will be paid on the basis of each meeting attended, plus travel expenses.
