Vacancy: Standards of Conduct Committee Member

The Royal Economic Society has recently adopted a Code of Conduct and agreed a Complaints Procedure for investigating complaints in relation to the Code. It is now establishing the RES Standards of Conduct Committee, which will report to the Trustee Board. Through its roles in overseeing the investigation of complaints and assisting in the development of associated processes, the Committee will help the Society to ensure that high standards of conduct are the norm across the economics profession.

The Committee will have six members and will choose its own chair. Committee members are not required to be members of the Royal Economic Society; it is anticipated that some will be from outside the economics profession.

The role will appeal to people who wish to contribute to the establishment and maintenance of high professional standards in any discipline, those interested in the health of UK economics, and/or people who would like to contribute to the work of the Royal Economic Society. Committee membership will also provide useful experience for individuals who may wish to take up a charity trustee role in the future.


Expressions of interest are warmly invited for membership of the RES Standards of Conduct Committee. An expression of interest should include a summary curriculum vitae and a covering letter, no longer than two to three pages in length.

Expressions of interest should be sent by email to by Monday 14 February 2022.
