Remuneration and Appointments Committee

The Remuneration and Appointments Committee oversees the recruitment process, performance and remuneration of the Chief Executive and considers issues relating to the appointment of Commissioners and committee members. It works closely with the English Heritage Trust in the selection of potential new Trustees.

It oversees Historic England’s diversity and inclusion policies and the way these are implemented, both in appointments and through HE’s public engagement strategy and programmes.

The Committee also reviews and advises on Historic England's overall Human Resources Strategy as appropriate to ensure that it is contributing effectively to the success of the organisation.
