Play your part in supporting a healthy democracy

IPSA was created in 2009 as the world’s first independent regulator of MPs’ business costs, and now also sets MPs’ pay and pensions. It plays a vital role in the UK’s Parliamentary democracy, ensuring that the rules for MPs’ remuneration are fair, workable, and transparent, and command public trust.

IPSA’s focus has now shifted to providing a simpler and more supportive service to MPs and their staff. We are seeking to strengthen our board with the addition of a non-executive board member who can support the Chair as IPSA goes through a programme of transformation requiring cultural change, technological improvement, and process redesign. The new board member will support the Chair in setting the organisation’s overall strategy, with a particular focus on people and change as well as digital.

The board member will need to bring a proven track record of successful people management and leadership within an organisation of scale and complexity, driving cultural change, building capability and capacity. They will also be able to demonstrate experience of significantly improving the capability and performance of an organisation through the adoption and implementation of digital technology as well as an understanding of modern pay and reward strategies and their positive impact on a workforce.

The ability to forge collaborative and productive relationships with a complex range of stakeholders both internally and externally is essential for success in this role.

This is a unique moment in IPSA’s life, and the board member will have an opportunity to contribute to lasting change and have personal impact on to the future of our democracy.

We are determined to ensure that IPSA is representative of the UK as a whole and we welcome and encourage applications from the widest range of people of different backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. We are particularly interested in attracting applications from suitably qualified candidates from underrepresented groups.
