UK Government Reopens Call for Arbitrators to join new UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement panels

14 Sep 2021

The UK government has reopened its Expression of Interest campaign seeking suitably qualified people to appoint to lists of arbitrators and expert panellists for the dispute settlement mechanisms within the UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA). The deadline for new applications is now 11.00pm on Sunday 19th September.

The Cabinet Office Call for Expressions of Interest includes full details of this opportunity and includes comprehensive information on the eligibility requirements and the selection and appointment process. There is no requirement for applicants to be UK nationals.

If you have already applied to either of the Government’s previous two campaigns, please do not submit another application. If you missed the deadline for the previous campaigns, or were ineligible for the last one (but now eligible under this one), you will need to submit an application under this campaign to be considered for selection. All new applicants under this campaign and all those candidates who previously applied in the previous two campaigns (ending on 2 May 2021 and 14 July 2021 respectively) will be considered for appointment using the same process, application requirements, and assessment criteria.

To be considered, applicants must submit the following to TCAdisputesettlement@cabinetoffice.gov.uk by 11.00pm (UK time) on Sunday 19th September 2021:

    • A cover letter (1,000 words maximum).
    • A CV (3 single-sided pages maximum), noting all nationalities held by the candidate.
    • Two professional reference contacts who must provide written statements on request.
    • A completed declaration form. 

Any questions regarding the process should be submitted to TCAdisputesettlement@cabinetoffice.gov.uk.
