Scrutiny Board Members

Federation of Small Businesses (FSB)
Voluntary basis

As you know, the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is a ‘not-for-profit’ organisation, formed nearly 50 years ago in 1974, and has been making the case to the Government and political decision-makers at all levels on the issues that matter to our members – small businesses and the self-employed. Through our campaigning and lobbying work, we bring the day-to-day impacts you are facing, and propose solutions to help, to the attention of those in power. This gives you a powerful collective voice to those who make decisions across the UK

The Role

Now is an exciting time in FSB’s evolution, and a great time to get involved. 

FSB’s Board of Directors is legally responsible for FSB through an oversight role. The Board oversees and promotes the strategy and purpose of FSB and ensures that its values, activity, and culture align with that purpose. The Board is responsible for the long-term sustainable success of FSB by identifying opportunities to create and preserve value; and establishing oversight to identify and mitigate risks.

Our independent Scrutiny Body of up to 12 members is responsible for the assessment of the Board’s performance and effectiveness, acting in FSB’s best interests as a critical friend to the Board. Having been established earlier this year, we are looking to strengthen the Scrutiny Body further with our new appointments in 2023 and we are particularly keen to hear from you if you have experience in risk management and audit as well as scrutiny and collaborative decisionmaking at a strategic level.
