CORU is inviting expressions of interest from Podiatrists for its Preliminary Proceedings Committee, one of CORU’s Disciplinary Committees and as members of the Podiatrist Registration Board Panel of Assessors.
Please note that there is no closing date, however expressions of interest within the Preliminary Proceedings Committee should be submitted as soon as possible.
Preliminary Proceedings Committee:
When a complaint has been received by CORU, it is screened by the Preliminary Proceedings Committee. The Committee looks at each complaint received by CORU and forms a view as to whether;
- it should be referred onwards for resolution by mediation OR
- for hearing to a Committee of Inquiry OR
- no further action should be taken.
Committee members will work together to consider information presented to them before forming a view on whether a complaint warrants further action. Committee members will demonstrate fairness and consistency in the application of the principles of natural justice and high quality regulation.
Currently, the time commitment for attendance is in the region of 10 to 15 working days each year and additional days for reading and training.
Hearings generally take place virtually but may also take place in person at our Dublin Office.
How to Apply:
Appointments are subject to review by the Nominations Committee and approval by Council.
Applications put forward to the Committee and Council will be based on the information provided on the application form.
