CIEH - Board Members


Dear prospective candidate,

I am delighted that you are interested in finding out more about the vacant governance roles that we have at CIEH. We are the professional body for environmental health, established by Royal Charter “to promote, for the public benefit, the theory and science of environment health”.

The working environment in which our members (and the wider profession) operate has been changing at speed. Environmental health practitioners ensure that all the physical environments in which we work, eat, live and play are safe. They work in local authorities and government departments, retailers and hotel chains, regulators and enforcement agencies, the NHS and armed services, academia and the third sector, charities and global corporates.

Like many professional bodies CIEH is going through a period of transformation. The pandemic brought both challenges and opportunities for us, alongside a need to review again the way in which we operate and the best way in which we can protect the public and support the profession.

To help this work, we are now looking to make appointments to our Board. Details of the role and the work of the Board are outlined in this pack. In this recruitment round, roles are open to both members and non-members of CIEH.

Our Charter places an important obligation on us to act in the public interest; we are determined to do that in an open and transparent way. Alongside that, we want to ensure that those with governance roles reflect the diversity of the modern profession and the communities it serves.

Volunteers play a hugely important role in our organisation. If you would like to join the team leading and transforming CIEH, and the support that it gives to the profession, we would welcome an application from you. You can find out more about the role requirements in this pack.

Thank you for your interest and, if these roles are right for you, we look forward to receiving your application.

Judith Hedgley, Chair of CIEH
