In recent months Rugby League has undergone a strategic review, a change in governance structure and an organisational restructure. These have now set the governing body up as Fit for Purpose and with a renewed focus to meet the challenges ahead in order to be Fit for Future. The next stage is to recruit a new Independent Non-Executive Chair and Independent Non-Executive Director to complement the existing strong Board performance.

The mission of the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) is to promote transparency and integrity in business. These are cornerstones to generating public trust and confidence in UK business and help attract investment in successful companies that provide jobs, create prosperity and generate economic growth. The FRC sets the UK Corporate Governance & Stewardship Codes which aim to make investors more accountable to their clients and beneficiaries. The FRC also sets standards for accounting, auditing and actuarial work. As the UK’s independent regulator and Competent Authority for Audit it monitors, and takes action where necessary, to promote the quality of corporate reporting and audit. It also operates independent enforcement arrangements for accountants and actuaries. Following the Independent Review in to the Financial Reporting Council (FRC), the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has accepted the recommendation that FRC should be replaced with a new independent regulator and Competent Authority for Audit – the Audit, Reporting and Governance Authority (ARGA). The FRC will therefore be undergoing a period of significant change as the recommendations are implemented, and a new regulator is created. The Government wants to see change implemented to put in place a world-class regulator operating with the highest levels of effectiveness. The incoming Chair will lead the regulator’s Board to take forward the fundamental changes recommended in the Independent Review, and to set the strategic direction of the new regulator once it is established. The successful candidate will initially be appointed to the FRC and will hold to account the executive leadership of the organisation as it undertakes its regulatory duties and commences implementation of the Independent Review’s recommendations. Key responsibilities and accountabilities;- The Board of the FRC is responsible for the long-term strategy and success of the FRC.

In light of the Independent Review by Sir John Kingman, the Board will ensure that there is oversight and strong governance while driving forward the recommended changes to create a strong and robust regulator.

Non-Executive Chair Wanted

West Nottinghamshire College is a huge asset to the communities it serves and the 26,000 students it educates, trains and develops. The facilities of the College are some of the best in the country, following £50m of capital projects – including a University Centre for Mansfield with a purpose to raise aspirations in the local area. Having enjoyed over a decade of growth, improvement and development across its quality of provision, scale of delivery and estate the College is now experiencing a period of financial challenge and is being supported through regulatory intervention and ongoing review. Following recent changes to the leadership of the College, the Corporation Board now seek a new Chair following the planned retirement of the incumbent in December 2018. The Corporation Board is the College’s governing body and meets monthly to consider strategic developments and monitor College and management performance. It is made up of highly experienced people drawn from the private sector, public bodies, community groups, educational establishments, staff and student representatives and the Interim Principal & CEO. The Board work closely with the College’s executive team to oversee its management and set its future direction. The College seek to appoint an experienced non-executive Chair to lead the Board and work closely with the interim leadership team to bring financial stability to the College and to satisfy the requirements of stakeholders, funders and regulators. The next 12 months will be a busy period of change within the organisation and the Chair will need to bring together a relatively new Board of non-executive governors, with the support of an experienced Clerk to the Board, to ensure the quality of education and student experience consistently improves and is not affected by the backdrop of financial difficulty. It is expected that candidates for this role will have led substantial change programmes – at both executive and non-executive level – and supported the regular appraisal of executive teams within large and complex organisations. This role would suit someone who thrives on challenge and cares deeply about providing high quality education and training to support social mobility. An understanding of the FE sector is not a prerequisite, though an appreciation of the challenges faced by the sector is. This is a high-profile appointment due to the high-profile nature of the College. Quote: West Nottinghamshire College.

These are exciting times for the transport sector in Wales. There is no doubt that transport services and infrastructure, and its role in connecting our communities, people and businesses to jobs, facilities, services and markets, is key to the delivery of the Welsh Government’s Programme for Government. Technological changes will transform the transport landscape in coming years. Rapid take-up of electric vehicles is a distinct possibility. As well as electrification the move to automated vehicles, and transport on demand, will present the Welsh Government with a range of policy challenges. These new technologies are opportunities for Wales’ economy to benefit from new highly-skilled jobs. How people use transport in their everyday lives will change dramatically over the next decade and we need to be ready for those changes and to meet the policy challenges ahead of us. Setting aside these emerging trends, there is also a need to focus on the here and now of transport delivery in Wales. The Welsh Ministers’ ambition is to deliver a transformational integrated transport system in Wales, providing high-quality, safe, affordable and sustainable transport for all; a system that contributes to economic growth and the country’s well-being. The improved devolved settlement offered through the Wales Act 2017 will enable the Welsh Government to put in place a framework for the delivery of transport services that can improve network quality, frequency, reliability and punctuality. Together with the Programme for Government this provides an opportunity to help drive a step change in the way we understand, plan, use and invest in transport in Wales. Transport for Wales (TfW) is a not for profit company, wholly-owned by the Welsh Government and established in 2015. Set-up initially as an expert adviser and advocate for transport related matters, TfW has provided technical advice to allow the Welsh Government to procure its Operator and Development Partner (ODP) for the Wales and Borders rail services and the delivery of the South Wales Metro. The Chair is responsible for leadership of the board and ensuring its effectiveness in all aspects of its role. They should promote a culture of openness and debate by facilitating the effective contribution of all non-executive directors in particular and ensuring constructive relations between executive and non-executive directors. Quote: TfW.

Two Partner London Solicitors’ Practice looking to Acquire:

This is an expanding 7 year old 2 Partner Practice based in the Angel Islington area are looking to acquire/absorb a small number of sole practitioners and/or two partner practices.  They are generally looking within the area bounded by The North Circular and South Circular Roads although would be prepared to consider firms as far north as Hendon, east as Docklands, west as Chiswick and south as Brixton.  They also have a particular interest in small firms in the Richmond, Mortlake and Hampstead areas.  They would consider firms handling most types of legal work [except Legally Aided] and firms with a turnover of between £100K and £350K would be the most attractive.

For further information, email quoting; Angel Islington Practice

Expanding 3  Partner, high profile and forward thinking practice in the Thames Valley are looking to expand by the acquisition of more practices and Senior Solicitors with followings. 

They are particularly interested in making contact with firms with close proximity to the M4, A4, A40 and the M40 from the West London suburbs as far west as the Oxford and Reading areas.  They have space in their offices close to the Slough and Windsor areas and are looking to absorb additional work and staff into their offices where they can provide the back office, infrastructure, marketing  and insurance aspects.  In exchange, they are willing to offer possible partnership, consultancy or a goodwill consideration to facilitate retirement.  Of particular interest to them is more, company, commercial, matrimonial/children work, immigration, landlord & tenant, insolvency, litigation and intellectual property.  For more information, call Ray Fox on 01494 483728.

A relatively new Practice based close to the M11 are looking to expand and develop a branch network in the Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex and Hertfordshire areas and would even be interested in a Central London location.

They are looking at acquiring small practices – Sole Practitioners as well as 2 or 3 Partner/Director firms – where the Principals are approaching retirement or feel they have a lack of critical mass to make their firm sufficiently profitable.  Ideally, they would be looking for the Principals/Solicitors to stay for a period to smooth the transition.  They are particularly interested in firms that handle non legal aid family/matrimonial, general private client work, crime and civil litigation.   

For further information, email quoting; M11 Practice

Expanding 10 Partner Central London Practice interested in Merging or making Acquisitions

We are delighted to have been retained by the above practice who are looking to expand and are interested in hearing from Principals/Partners of smaller Practices who might be looking for an exit route and who would consider an arrangement with a Central London Firm worth exploring.

My Clients are already handling work in the following categories – Residential Conveyancing, Commercial Property, Civil Litigation, Family, Crime, Immigration, Estate Planning and General Commercial.  They already hold franchises in Family, Crime and Immigration.  They are interested in expanding their work exposure in their existing categories but would not be averse to consider moving into other areas of law where such opportunities exist.

They are happy to consider merging with or the acquisition/absorption of Practices within a reasonable commute of central London.

They would be prepared to listen to proposals from the Principals/Partners of firms who would find an attraction in being part of a larger organisation and who might find the offer of, say, Equity, Partnership, Employment or Consultancy a very real alternative to continuing the running their own Practices in this tough economic climate.

For further information, call Ray Fox in confidence on 01494 483728 or email quoting Central London.
