Chair - The Channel Islands Competition and Regularity Authorities
Recruiter: The Channel Islands Competition and Regularity Authorities
Posted: 20 Jan 2020
Closes: 18 Feb 2020
Job Function: Chair
* Paid Role* Remuneration: £50,000 per annum
CICRA operates as a combined competition and markets body and economic regulator and works to ensure that Channel Islanders receive the best value, choice and access to high quality services, in addition to promoting competition and consumer interest. CICRA’s role is an essential component of ‘making markets work’ in Jersey and in Guernsey. The organisation regulates the telecom sector across the Channel Islands, together with the electricity sector in
Guernsey and the ports and postal services sectors in Jersey.
CICRA is now looking to appoint a Chair who will bring experience at a senior professional level of both competition policy and/or utility regulation with a successful track record of achievement in their professional field. Experience operating at board level is essential, as is an appreciation of consumer, competition and regulatory policy and the unique challenges faced by smaller economies.
CICRA is a relatively small organisation but with a broad remit covering regulation and competition across two jurisdictions. Additional complexity arises from the broad scope of external interactions, across a wide range of stakeholders. Candidates will therefore need a track record of building and managing relationships with complex and disparate stakeholders.
The time commitment for the Chair is a minimum of 35 days per year, with a large proportion of this time expected to be in the islands. This includes time required to attend meetings of the Authorities and to liaise with key stakeholders.
Saxton Bampfylde Ltd is acting as an employment agency advisor to CICRA on this appointment.
