More about the Roles
Hearings are considered by independent panels drawn from a pool of selected lay persons and barristers. BTAS is looking for a diverse range of individuals prepared to serve as Panel Chairs, Panel Members and Clerks at its hearings. Individuals are appointed to the pool on the recommendation of the independent Tribunal Appointments Body (the ‘TAB’), which conducts and oversees the entirety of the recruitment and selection process in accordance with BTAS’ Appointments Protocol.
Applications are invited for the following positions:
- Queen’s Counsel Members of Hearing Panels
- Members of Hearing Panels (practising barrister, minimum of seven years standing)
- Clerks to Hearing Panels (practising barrister, post-pupillage)
- Lay Members of Hearing Panels
BTAS would particularly like to encourage applications from all diverse members of our community and society, as we feel that our panels are currently under-represented by minority groups.
