        Are you ready to lead a dynamic team in an organisation that plays a vital role in our democracy?

        The Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) are seeking a Director of Corporate Services to spearhead their corporate functions, ensuring seamless operations and effective resource management.

        The LGBCE is a statutory body established in 2010 to conduct local government boundary reviews. It is an independent body, accountable to Parliament through the Speaker’s Committee of the House of Commons, which approves annually its budget estimate alongside a rolling five-year corporate plan. The Commission’s main function is to recommend fair electoral and boundary arrangements for local authorities across England.

        As Director of Corporate Services, you’ll play a pivotal role in the strategic leadership of the organisation, collaborating closely with the Chief Executive and the Board to shape the corporate plan; ensuring alignment with strategic objectives and its timely submission to relevant committees.

        The successful incumbent will be instrumental in providing strategic guidance to the LGBCE leadership team, not only overseeing the development of the corporate plan, but also crafting a robust digital strategy to enhance operational efficiency. They will lead on financial initiatives, managing budgets, overseeing financial submissions, and ensuring compliance with regulatory standards, whilst upholding impeccable governance and compliance, and employing internal control and risk management mechanisms. They will serve as a trusted advisor to the Board and leadership team on matters of finance, governance, and risk.

        The LGBCE are seeking candidates with a CCAB-recognised qualification and demonstrable experience in budget management, with exceptional leadership skills. The ability to navigate multi-disciplinary environments, coupled with a strong understanding of corporate management processes is essential. The ideal candidate is an authentic, inclusive leader with a collaborative mindset, exhibiting excellent attention to detail, and resilience in the face of challenges.

        If you’re ready to make a profound impact in a high-profile environment and possess the requisite expertise and personal attributes, we invite you to apply for the position. Become a part of our dedicated team, committed to excellence and innovation.

        The deadline for applications is Sunday 21st April 2024.
