Trustee Recruitment

The Board of Trustees consists of 16 CIOB Fellows and Members. They have the ultimate responsibility for directing the affairs of the Institute and delivering its Royal Charter objectives. They set policy, oversee the budget and are legally responsible for the Institute. Trusteeships are prestigious positions. Trustees are committed to developing the work of the CIOB, spreading influence and raising standards in the wider industry.
