There's a BSI Committee Chair vacancy

BSI committee chairs play a critical and rewarding part in the standards-making process. Chairs provide leadership, guide the consensus-building process and help develop and set the committee's work programme. This voluntary position requires a higher level of commitment than the committee member role. Much of the work is done online, with most standards-making groups meeting a few times each year, currently virtually.

The Committee Chair would have the support of a BSI Standards Development Manager to advise on development of the work programme, processes and meeting organisation and support (agendas and minutes).
