Recruitment of an external non-executive Member of the Digital Strategy Board

We are seeking to recruit an external member of the Digital Strategy Board.

About us:

We want to provide excellent digital services for a modern Parliament.

We work with the House of Commons and the House of Lords to help them meet their objectives.

We support teams around Parliament with information management, communications, and engagement strategies.


About you:

You’re from a strong digital background with the ability to take a strategic view.

You have an innovative approach, ideally with some public sector experience.

You’ve already implemented organisational change and cultural transformation and you’re happy to demonstrate your experience.

You’re an outcome-focused critical thinker with energy, ambition, and drive.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion (D&I) principles are at the heart of Parliament’s approach to being a well-respected institution and an inclusive environment in which to work and to visit. We are continuing our efforts to increase the diversity of our staff at all levels to reflect the population of London and the UK, as well as to attract the diversity of skills and experience needed to run this complex organisation effectively. We particularly welcome women and minority ethnic candidates to apply for this position and support us in achieving our D&I and corporate strategic goals.

Candidates should not be active members of a political party, and will be subject to restrictions on political activity once appointed. Security clearance is an ongoing requirement of the role as is the right to work in the United Kingdom. Parliament is not able to sponsor visas.

Time commitment and remuneration

The successful candidate will need to be willing to dedicate around 10 to 15 days per year to the role.  This will include meetings/familiarisation visits by arrangement.

Appointment will be for one year, with the possibility of extension. An annual fee of £9,000 will be paid.

You are invited to apply with a letter of interest and full CV via the House of Commons careers website – https://www.careers-houseofcommons.org/.
