JNCC is led by the Joint Committee, which brings together members
from the nature conservation bodies for England, Scotland, Wales
and Northern Ireland and independent members appointed by the
Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
under an independent Chair.
Support is provided to the Committee by a company set
up and controlled by the Committee solely for that purpose. The
company employs around 130 people. They bring together scientific
and technical expertise, extensive knowledge of policy at global,
European and national levels and skills in working with other
staff are based in offices in Peterborough and Aberdeen.
