Could you help shape the future counselling and psychotherapy landscape? 

Our four committees are responsible for supporting the development and ongoing delivery of our strategy, providing the oversight that ensures our policies and processes are being applied consistently and effectively.

By joining one of our committees, you'll have the opportunity to contribute directly to the way BACP operates and oversee the various workstreams held by each committee. 

Current vacancies

We're looking for individuals with a wide range of experience to join four of our committees:

Finance, Risk, Audit, Policy and Performance (FRAPP), which holds responsibility for developing our financial strategy. 

Public Protection Committee (PPC), which holds responsibility for developing our public protection strategy, including the development of our Register. 

Governance, Remuneration and Nomination Committee (GRaN), which holds responsibility for ensuring effective governance across the organisation and for considering and determining the framework for remuneration, benefits and incentives. 

Research Committee (RC), which has delegated responsibility for developing, informing, and monitoring our research strategy, overseeing our research procedures, policies, and plans, and approving and reviewing research projects.

Our committees perform an integral function and comprise of BACP members and non-members. It would be desirable, but not essential, if you've supported or worked within the charity sector. There's no expectation that appointed members of a committee will have any direct knowledge or experience of counselling and psychotherapy.
