The Authority will be constituted by up to 3 members, led by a Chair.

The successful applicant for Authority Chair will have:

             extensive experience at a senior leadership level in an independent regulatory organisation or law enforcement body;

             substantial experience in the economic regulation of telecommunications services in competitive markets;

             demonstrated ability to understand, interpret, and act upon highly technical information and effectively carry out legislative functions;
