The leadership challenge of a generation

Civil Service Director Roles

£100,000 & excellent rewards

England, nationwide

It’s a very rare organisation that can point to its mission as the defining leadership challenge in generations. With the impact of COVID-19 being felt in every area of public life, the Civil Service in England can do just that.

The unprecedented scale and complexity of this fluid challenge is bringing together leaders from all over government, and we’re now looking to add to them with the highest calibre professionals.

Whether your experience is from inside or outside of the Civil Service, what’s on offer is a career-defining experience. Your inspirational leadership qualities, fresh perspectives and ability work on a multitude of emerging priorities will be hugely influential in shaping the Government’s response to the pandemic.

We have Director opportunities across multiple departments, including the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the Department for Health & Social Care (DHSC), the Department for Transport (DfT) and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). These organisations have very substantial budgets, complex cross-cutting programmes and a nationwide remit you simply won’t find anywhere else.

We’re looking for significant experience of engaging at executive and board levels, excellent relationship and influencing skills across organisations, and the ability to work creatively at very fast pace.  You’ll need to see ambiguity as an opportunity for innovation and be motivated by the chance to help guide the nation through complicated and uncertain times.

In return, you can look forward to an impressive package including valuable Civil Service pension, generous annual leave and much more. 

Closing date: 14th June 2020.
