How much time is required for the role?

The post offers approximately ten days work per year and is to be appointed for a one year period initially.

Where will I be required to work?

Lay representatives will be required to work flexibly and have the ability to travel to locations across Wales to participate in HEIW activities.

How much will I be paid?

Payment is made per whole day at a rate of £80.50 or per half day at a rate of £40.25 per event. Reasonable travel and subsistence costs will also be paid.
