The independent chair will also be the primary contact for the victim’s and/or alleged perpetrator/s’ family and/or next of kin (if they wish/it is appropriate for them to be involved) to maintain independence in this relationship.

Successful applicants will demonstrate the ability to: work collaboratively; critically analyse and synthesise evidence; draw on professional experience and knowledge in decision making; communicate effectively and confidently deal with difficult and sensitive situations.

The location for these roles will be flexible within the United Kingdom,however meetings may be required at the offices of the local area taking forward the OWHR.
