Councillors' pay: you could join a board deciding their allowance

THOUGHTFUL citizens are need to help set the pay of councillors. South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse district councils are looking for volunteers to join a panel to help set councillors' allowances. The independent remuneration panel for councillors' allowances consists of up to five members of the public who help determine how much money councillors from both councils receive for their time, while also giving value for money.

Successful candidates need to attend two or three meetings before the end of 2019 and would expect to be part of the panel until September 2023, although after the initial review of allowances in 2019, there is very little extra work.

The role is voluntary however travelling expenses can be paid.

The closing date for applications is November 29.
