Appointed Conservator Vacancy

The Board of Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators is recruiting

An opportunity has arisen to be instrumental in shaping the future of Wimbledon and Putney Commons that cover some 1140 acres of publicly accessible land in south west London.

The Board of Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators is composed of five elected and three Appointed Conservators as required under the Wimbledon and Putney Commons Act 1871. The Secretaries of State for the Home Office, Defence and Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs are responsible for appointing the three Appointed Conservator positions to the Board.

The Board approved a process, based on current best practice guidelines, to select suitable candidates to recommend for appointment as a Conservator to replace Mr Derek Frampton, the current Home Office Appointed Conservator, who comes to the end of his tenure after nine years’ service.

The appointment process follows, as far as possible, the process set out in the Government’s “Better Public Appointments” guidance, and will be similar to that followed in recent years for the other two Appointed Conservators. A shortlist of candidates will be recommended to the Home Secretary to make a final decision on the appointment.
