Cambridgeshire County Council are seeking three people to make recommendations for the type and level of allowances paid to Councillors.

The three applicants, who do not necessarily need experience of local government but need to be over the age of 21, will sit on the Independent Remuneration Panel.

Work involves carrying out a review of the existing allowances scheme, taking into account changes to the roles and responsibilities of County Councillors.

The panel will meet to undertake the review after May 2017 and is supported by Council officers.

Panel members could be paid up to £150 a day and be reimbursed for travel.

Anyone employed by Cambridgeshire County Council or another local authority (except a parish council), or serving as a councillor, or are actively involved in a political party are not eligible for appointment.
