Senior Governance Manager

Contract type: Permanent full time

Salary: £36,000

Closing date: 04/11/2018

We are looking for a Senior Governance Manager to lead our corporate governance and board management service. This is an exciting opportunity, based in our planning and governance team, for someone who is an experienced corporate governance professional with manager-level experience in committee and board work, ideally in another regulator or similar body.

Bringing a strong quality focus, you will have a good working knowledge of corporate governance practices and public sector transparency requirements, with relevant experience at a senior level, including working with a governing board consisting of high-profile expert and lay members.

You will be accustomed to managing committee terms of office and recruitment processes, be able to take formal minutes to a very high standard, and have a track record of excellent written and verbal communication skills. Your interpersonal skills and ability to influence will be as highly developed as your attention to detail and ability to organise and prioritise work.

A qualification in corporate governance or as a company secretary would be a bonus.

Committee Officer

Contract type: Permanent full time

Salary: £25,000

Closing date: 04/11/2018

We are looking for an experienced Committee Officer to join our small, busy licensing team, which currently runs three regular licensing committees. Based in our Planning and Governance team, the post holder will help to service the Authority’s quasi-judicial licensing and approvals regime to an exceptional standard of quality. The postholder will ensure our licensing meetings are well planned, and run smoothly, that committee bundles are prepared and quality assured, and that licensing and approval decisions are recorded, communicated and published in a timely and accurate manner.

This is an exciting and interesting opportunity for a committee management professional with significant experience of minuting formal committees. As well as superb minute-writing skills, the ideal candidate will be able to understand and follow discussions on complex, often scientific, topics, capturing decisions and key discussion points, and will be accustomed to liaising with senior, high profile external committee members and independent experts to ensure minutes are considered and agreed before publication. They will be used to dealing with sensitive and confidential material, and will not be phased when committee members ask for direct support or advice. They will have prior experience of servicing committees that use formal decision-making tools (such as decision trees, reference packs, standing orders, or similar). Experience of issuing formal legal notices or licences would also be valuable.

The right candidate will be a natural detail person, with a good understanding of the importance of accuracy and of disciplined record-keeping in this kind of work, since maintaining internal systems and databases is a core part of the role. The role also requires diplomacy, personal resilience, and excellent organisational and time management skills. The committee work itself is challenging, fascinating and rewarding.

If you would like more information, please contact Paula Robinson on 020 7291 8220.
