Members of the Human Tissue Authority - (VAC-1696)

The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care is looking to appoint up to five Members to the Human Tissue Authority (HTA).

The HTA’s key priority is to maintain public and professional confidence in the removal, storage and use of human tissue by ensuring that these activities are undertaken safely and ethically, and with proper consent.

You should bring commitment to the objectives of the HTA and have the interest and drive to make a real contribution to the Authority with an ability to provide effective scrutiny and challenge to the Executive and to hold them to account for the delivery of performance and the delivery of its strategy.

You should also have the ability to think strategically and to exercise sound judgement on complex and sensitive issues with the highest standards of personal propriety in relation to governance, accountability, risk and financial management.

In addition, you should bring skills and experience in one of the following areas:

  • Data and analytics as drivers for digital transformation;
  • Professional experience in any of the sectors regulated by the HTA;
  • Experience of organ donation and transplantation either from a patient or practitioner perspective;
  • Medical, clinical or research ethics.

Remuneration will be £7,883 per annum for a time commitment of 2-3 days per month.

The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care determines the length of appointments, which may be for up to a maximum of 3 years.
