The position is usually held for three years, with the opportunity of being re-appointed to the role.
The Fundraising Regulator was launched on 7 July 2016. It is chaired by Lord Grade.

The Fundraising Regulator is looking for applicants who:
- have a track record “at an equivalent level in a substantial organisation”
- an awareness of the strategic and operational challenges facing the Fundraising Regulator
- an understanding of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of company directors, and
- knowledge and understanding of the charitable sector.
Board members work for one day per month, for a fee of £300 per day.
Stephen Dunmore, Chief Executive of the Fundraising Regulator, said: “The Fundraising Regulator is at an exciting moment in time. We have launched the Fundraising Preference Service, we are continuing to develop the Code of Fundraising Practice and we are committed to helping charities and the public navigate new challenges, such as GDPR.
“This role is a great opportunity for anyone looking to help make fundraising more fair, ethical and transparent. We look forward to applications.”
