The Home Office is seeking to appoint a new chairman for the Security Industry Authority, one non-executive Board member and one non-executive Board member for Scotland.
Chairman of the SIA
The SIA’s chairman will work closely with other Board members and the CEO to provide overall strategic leadership of the Security Industry Authority. As the SIA moves towards the introduction of a new regime for business regulation, the chairman will work strategically to lead the Board in delivering effective transition and change.
The chairman will form strong working relationships with the CEO, SIA staff, the private security industry, enforcement partners and other stakeholders to promote effective regulation and ensure public safety.
They will ensure that the Board fulfils its responsibilities for the governance of the SIA and that staff maintain their focus on delivering change and the overall aims of the SIA as established by the Board and Ministers.

Non-executive SIA Board Members
The Board members will work with the chairman and the Board in setting the overall strategic direction of the SIA, contribute to the phased transition to a new regulatory regime and ensure the SIA carries out its duties effectively.
Along with other Board members they will ensure that, through appropriate governance, the Executive Team is held to account for discharging its duties to the highest possible standards.
Board members are expected to be innovators and motivators who promote new thinking to achieve change and continuous improvement. They must be able to build strong working relationships across a wide and diverse range of stakeholders. They should have undisputed personal integrity and a personal style that demonstrates authority and commitment.
The Board member for Scotland must have a good understanding and knowledge of Scotland, the ability to represent Scotland’s security interests, an awareness of the political and stakeholder landscape in Scotland and an understanding of the role of a UK regulator operating in a devolved administration.
