I was delighted to become chair of what is now IRCM in early 2020. It has really developed over that period making considerable gains towards holding a register of case managers and preparing for its application to the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) under its accredited register scheme. I am proud to have been part of this journey.
In preparation for the next steps in IRCM’s development the structure of the organisation needs to evolve. IRCM anticipates recruiting to a number of voluntary roles over the course of 2023. At present we are seeking:
- a new chair to lead the organisation into its next phase
- panellists – to hear a range of cases and appeals, considering these and working with fellow panellists to reach outcomes in line with IRCM policies and guidelines.
Other roles we anticipate recruiting for later in the year are directors, members of the board’s committees and groups.
Volunteers have been at the heart of the development of IRCM and the Quality Case Management Project (QCM) that led to its development. As the originators of QCM they came initially through BABICM, CMSUK and VRA but latterly also by responding directly to IRCM’s communications.
We want to reach as wide a pool of people as possible though and would very much appreciate your help in publicising these opportunities. We are seeking to recruit people from not only from across the breadth of the UK case management sector but also lay representatives. A lay person is someone who wouldn’t be eligible to become a registered case manager when registration opens and wouldn’t have been at any previous point.
We actively encourage and welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, particularly those from underrepresented and minority groups who are reflective of the diversity of the public which we aim to safeguard.
If these opportunities are of interest to you then please do apply or alternatively get in touch if you’d like to have an informal discussion initially.
