IoL National Chairman - Could this be you? Published Date: 04/01/2024

Could you champion the role of licensing, good regulation and excellent partnership working?

The Institute of Licensing (IoL) is looking for its next National Chair to help take our work and organisation to the next level. The IoL is the professional body for licensing practitioners across the UK representing circa 5,000 licensing practitioners from local government, police, industry and private practice.    

The IoL champions excellence in licensing law and practice from all areas, and its broad church brings together all sectors including regulators and industry to achieve its objectives.    The IoL promotes good practice, partnership working and professional standards across all areas of licensing and aspires to attain chartered status to elevate the profession to a higher level.

This is an exciting time for the IoL with a growth agenda which includes increased engagement on all levels alongside continued development of professional qualifications and career pathways.

Our new Chair will represent the IoL with a clear understanding of the IoL’s broad church and neutral, non-lobbying position. The Chair must impartially represent the sometimes diverging views and interests of Board members and the IoL’s wider membership. The Chair shall act in accordance with IoL Policies and not act in a way that risks damaging the reputation, interests or objectives of the IoL. They will support the executive at a range of stakeholder meetings, offer public comment on media work, chair our quarterly board meetings and oversee the implementation of our business development plan.  Our ideal candidate will be an experienced chair with previous experience of running an organisation, charity and/or significant business, a notable figure with connections to licensing, a keen understanding of the power in partnerships and collaboration and good business acumen.

Applications deadline: 31st January 2024.
