Electoral Commissioner, Wales

£374 per day, 4-5 days per month

Appointment to commence March 2017

The Electoral Commission is an independent body set up by the UK Parliament, responsible for regulating political party and election finance and setting standards for well-run elections.  It works to support a healthy democracy, where elections and referendums are based on principles of trust, participation, and no undue influence, and in placing the voter first in everything that it does.

The Commission is now seeking to appoint a new Electoral Commissioner, Wales. As a Commissioner you will bring a track record of senior level involvement in the not for profit, private or public sector and will be able to contribute to the leadership and strategic direction of the organisation.

You will be comfortable with scrutiny from the regulated community, politicians and the wider media and the accountability this entails, and your senior level networks throughout Wales will help the Commission build and deepen its relationships and demonstrate its accountability to the Welsh Assembly for its work.

These are important times for democratic politics – if you have the motivation and passion for the challenge of regulating this area of public life, we want to hear from you.

Closing date is 5pm on Friday 11 November 2016.
