The Executive Team

The Council is supported by around 320 staff, headed up by the Chief Executive and Registrar, Ian Brack and the Executive Management Team (EMT).

EMT is responsible for:

  • managing and deploying the resources provided by the Council to achieve its objectives
  • providing leadership to the managers and staff who carry out the Council’s business
  • providing the senior executive face of the Council in its relations with stakeholder and partner organisations.

EMT members fulfil the function of executive directors of the Council. They share collective responsibility for actions and decisions taken, regardless of their individual line responsibilities.

The staff team is made up of five directorates: Registration and Corporate Resources, Organisational Development, Legal and Governance, Strategy and Fitness to Practise. There are around 20 teams within those directorates and each team carries out a specific role.
