Jobs with GMWDA 


Independent Members (x 2)


We are seeking two Independent Members to join the Committee from June 2015.

Each role would be for a period of two years (extendable by mutual agreement). During this time you will be asked to attend four meetings a year. These meetings are generally held in the evening. Whilst we are not able to offer remuneration for Independent Members, all reasonable expenses will be paid. Skills or experience in finance, accounting or auditing will be valuable, but equally important is the ability to ask challenging questions and probe complex issues.
