The RSPO complaints system provides a fair, transparent and impartial process to address complaints and appeals against RSPO members.

Given the growing body of decisions delivered by the RSPO Complaints Panel (including the Appeals Panel, moving forward under CAP 2017), it is pertinent that the resulting body of knowledge is properly documented and distilled into a publication.

As such, the RSPO Secretariat is desirous of engaging a Consultant for this purpose, based on Terms of Reference available here.  



The Consultant should possess the following qualifications and skills:

(a) Degree in Law;  

(b) At least 5 years of post qualification experience, preferable in legal practise/advisory;

(c) Sophisticated drafting skills;

(d) Excellent command of English, both written and spoken; and

(e) Proactive and independent.  

Prior consultancy experience in similar projects is an added advantage.



Interested applicants are to submit the following documents to [email protected] on or before 17 September 2018:

(a) Curriculum Vitae (CV);

(b) Proposed fees; and

(c) Proposed methodology.
