Non-Executive Directors

Lending Standards Board
The appointment is remunerated at £22,500 per annum

We have a clear goal – to drive fair outcomes for personal and business customers within financial services through independent oversight of the Standards and Codes for which we are responsible. Financial service providers sign up to the LSB’s Standards and Codes which are applicable to their products and services, and we undertake oversight and assurance activities to ensure they are compliant with our framework of standards and regulation. Our registered firms comprise the major UK banking groups and lenders, credit card providers, debt purchase and debt collection firms.


We are looking for two highly respected Non-Executive Directors to join us in early 2024 and help steer LSB through the next crucial phase of development and impact. We are ideally seeking people with a prominent, ready-made reputation and profile in their field. You will be influential and sought out for your opinion and expertise across a range of issues of national interest that are relevant to the LSB. 

One appointee will be a profiled commentator on issues of social justice or the broader public interest – you may be a senior journalist or commentator with knowledge of the industries we work in, a chief economist, a leading consumer advocate or indeed a thought leader with a reputation earned in another field. The second appointee will bring their unquestioned personal credibility in the field of finance and will have additional experience of scaling businesses. You may have founded or led a new bank, or perhaps you scaled a leading FinTech business. 

Both appointments require an understanding of the value that the LSB brings to public and consumer life, along with an appreciation of why this is exactly the right moment to look at how we fulfil our potential and go much further than we have before. Intellectually curious, personally engaged and committed to the non-executive role, you will be part of a diverse team charged with reframing the LSB for a new era.
