CIISA Board Opportunities

Applications now open to join the CIISA Board as Chair and Non-executive members

Chair: £50k p/a

Board members: £20k p/a

The Creative Industries Independent Standards Authority, CIISA, is a new body being established to uphold and improve standards of behaviour across the creative industries, including preventing and tackling all forms of bullying and harassment of a discriminatory nature. To support CIISA’s launch later in 2024 we are now looking to appoint the Chair and first four members of CIISA’s Board.

CIISA’s Board will be its governing body, working with CIISA’s Executive Team to bring our plans to fruition, setting CIISA’s strategic direction and providing oversight of delivery. It will ensure that CIISA maintains its independence and impartiality – crucial for its credibility – and that it is building confidence and trust in its service offering within all sectors of the creative industries.

We welcome applications from individuals from across the UK with either senior leadership experience in the regulatory sector or who have senior leadership experience of one of CIISA’s initial creative industries (Film & TV, Music, Theatre) but who are not engaged or employed within it (currently or in the recent past) to protect CIISA’s independence.

Applicants must have the passion for making a difference and the energy and commitment to help us realise our vision. These roles are remunerated with an anticipated time commitment of up to 2 days per week (Chair) and up to 1 day per week (Non-Executive Board Members) during the first year to support CIISA’s development during this critical period, reducing thereafter.

Full information on the roles including the skills and experience we are seeking and our independence requirements can be found via the links below, along with FAQs and the diversity monitoring form.

Applicants should be sent to by midday on Wednesday 17 April (midday).
