- advise healthcare organisations on appointing healthcare chaplains including the professional content of job descriptions;
- represent the professional associations at interviews for chaplains’ posts as impartial external assessors of the professional ability of candidates;
- ensure that recruitment and selection to chaplains’ posts are fair, consistent and open and that the best candidate for the post is appointed;
- monitor the recruitment and selection of chaplains across the UK.
