ICE is asking Members of the Institution to help maintain appropriate ethical standards by applying to become a member of the Ethics Committee.
The Ethics Committee is one of several member-led Committees and Panels at ICE and its role is to determine and highlight areas of ethical concern for the profession as a whole as well as promote professional practice to which the Institution would like its members to adhere.
The Ethics Committee currently meets on an ad-hoc basis, however this will likely change to four regular scheduled meetings. Ethics Committee Members are expected to bring a broad wealth of knowledge of the profession as well as familiarity with the range of everyday challenges members face ‘on the ground’. Ethics Committee members must also be conversant with the overarching challenges faced by the profession as a whole. In doing this work, Ethics Committee Members will play a key role in framing the ethical standards that shape the way ICE members, and the profession as a whole, work.
What makes a suitable candidate?
Candidates must have a passion for ensuring that ICE continues to highlight and promote the highest ethical standards and must have a keen interest in identifying the potential ethical challenges posed by new and innovative areas and modes of working.
Ethics Committee members must be Members of the Institution and candidates should possess a keen interest in various aspects of the profession. The Committee warmly welcomes applications from all those who are interested in the role, and encourages applications from women and those of BAME backgrounds.
Committee members will be asked to serve for 4 years, with the possibility of extension. We are seeking five new members. The role is unpaid - however Committee members’ expenses are reimbursed.
The successful candidates will be chosen by the end of February 2021.
