Job description

Panel members for Regulatory Decisions Committee of the FCA FCA Regulatory Decisions Committee (RDC)
The RDC is an FCA Board Committee that is operationally separate from the rest of the FCA. The FCA Board appoints the RDC Chair and members, who are drawn from across a spectrum of business, consumer and industry backgrounds.

The RDC takes certain decisions on behalf of the FCA relating to enforcement and supervisory actions, and firm authorisation and individual approval applications.

The RDC process is administrative, not judicial. It is not an appeal body; it is the final stage of decision-making for the FCA.
Roles available
The FCA is recruiting individuals who have the skills, knowledge, experience and judgment to be part of a pool of persons who may be appointed to a Regulatory Decisions Committee panel.

Appointment of members to a panel (normally of three people) considering particular cases will be based on expertise, management of conflicts of interest and availability.

The roles are part-time. Case work may be low in volume and irregular in frequency but may require more time commitment during the progress of a particular case (the time commitment may be up to 2 to 3 days per month, to include preparation, attendance at meetings and follow up discussions). RDC members are also expected to make themselves available to attend four days a year of general (not case-specific) meetings and training. RDC members are paid at an hourly rate. RDC members are appointed for a three-year term.

Committee members are supported by a dedicated administrative and legal secretariat.
