  • You will monitor the performance of the Executive team, ensuring financial controls and systems of risk management are robust and monitored regularly and rigorously.
  • You will ensure the Board maintains high standards of corporate governance and that it complies with its articles of association as well as relevant legal, regulatory and governance requirements;

The Individual
