Executive summary

Under the Museum of London Act, the Mayor appoints nine Governors to serve on the Museum of London Board. This comprises half the total strength of the Board. The remaining appointments are made by the Corporation of London.

There are currently four vacancies within the Mayoral appointed half of the Board. To enable high quality candidates to be sourced for these roles, the Museum of London has engaged a firm of headhunters, HPA Advisory, and the GLA has agreed to reimburse the Museum in full for the costs arising. This is in keeping with previous practice. As a result, approval is sought for GLA funding of £25,000 in 2014-15 to meet the cost of the Museum engaging HPA Advisory.
