The CIOT and the ATT wish to appoint a Chair of the Taxation Disciplinary Board, to succeed the current Chair who is retiring.
The Taxation Disciplinary Board (TDB) was established as an independent body in 2001 by the Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) and the Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) to investigate complaints against their members.
As educational charities with similar objects, the CIOT and ATT have together over 27,000 members and students, and are the leading professional bodies in the UK concerned solely with taxation. Their mission is to advance public education in, and promote the study of, the administration and practice of taxation, together with promoting and maintaining the highest professional standards among their members.
The TDB seeks to operate as a fair independent enforcement system, acting in the public interest, which supports and maintains the high professional standards of the CIOT and ATT. Professional standards are set by the CIOT and ATT independently of the Taxation Disciplinary Board.
As well as dealing with conduct cases TDB has responsibility for determining and enforcing sanctions for non-compliant members in relation to anti-money laundering (AML) regulations. (CIOT and ATT are both AML supervisors). In this role TDB needs to take account of guidance and direction from the Office of Professional Body Anti-money laundering Supervision (OPBAS).
Ideally you will be a qualified lawyer with significant, relevant experience of disciplinary tribunals gained from a professional services/regulated sector. The role is part time and flexible, with a probable commitment of a day a week and commands an appropriate level of remuneration.
First round interviews will take place on 13 January 2020 at CIOT/ATT offices in central London.
If you’re interested in applying for this role, please email Renata Sandra-Toth, on rsandra-toth [at] ciot.org.uk by 2 January 2020, with a copy of your CV and covering letter.
