Overview

The VOA is an executive agency of HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). We provide crucial
property and land valuation advice to government to support national and local taxation and
benefits. Our valuations enable the collection of around £50billion in local taxation alone
from our business rates and council tax work. VOA also provides many other statutory and
non-statutory valuations and provides property advice and a range of supporting valuation
services to the public sector.
We are in a period of radical transformation, which includes delivery of major policy
changes, full modernisation of our IT and digital infrastructure and a significant
transformation to our office estate, all to be completed by 2020. This is all to be achieved
against the backdrop of public sector austerity and financial constraint. These are exciting
times as we enter into new territory and challenge ourselves to continue to deliver improved
services for our customers.
We are looking to appoint two Non-Executive Directors of the VOA Board to constructively
challenge and contribute to the development of our strategy and scrutinise the performance
of management in delivery of our agreed goals/objectives. One of these Non-Executive
Directors will also chair the VOA Audit and Risk Assurance Committee. We are very open to
the kind of background that you will bring to this opportunity; we are looking for a balance
on our Board, however key areas of priority for us include digital, customer focus, risk and
audit and continuous improvement. We are also looking for a Non Executive Member of our
Audit and Risk Committee.
If the challenge of change and making a contribution is an attractive one and you feel you
can add value, we look forward to hearing from you.
