Chair (Sponsor Board)
Houses of Parliament - Shadow Sponsor Board
The Palace of Westminster Restoration and Renewal Programme has been established to tackle the vitally important work that needs to be done to protect and preserve the heritage of the Palace of Westminster and ensure it can continue to serve as home to the UK Parliament in the 21st century. This is a programme of work of national importance and in early 2018, Parliament agreed that the most effective way to carry out the restoration and renewal of the Palace in one single phase is to temporarily move out of the building. As a result, work is now underway to establish a shadow Olympic-style Delivery Authority and Sponsor Board comprised of high-profile individuals.
Parliament is now looking to appoint a high-profile, talented externally-recruited Chair with a background of leadership at the very highest level. As an experienced board-level individual the Chair will be able to demonstrate an outstanding track record of leadership and deep expertise in the types of issues that are likely to be important in the Restoration and Renewal Programme, demonstrate an knowledge of the demands of working with Parliament, and excellent communication and influencing skills; the ability to listen effectively and challenge constructively, supporting collective decisions and balancing challenge with assurance and support.
Additionally, the Chair will possess outstanding levels of credibility with strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work with senior parliamentarians and key external stakeholders, forging collaborative relationships, and demonstrate a personal commitment to public service values such as diversity and inclusion, and the Nolan Principles of public life: Selflessness; Integrity; Objectivity; Accountability; Openness; Honesty; Leadership.
The Chair is likely to spend four to five days per month on Sponsor Board related activities. In the early days of the new body and around the time of transition to statutory status, more time commitment may be required in order to set the strategic direction of the programme, establish good governance, and liaise with parliamentarians and other stakeholders. The Chair will receive an annual remuneration of c.£40,000.
The closing date for all application is Monday 21 May.
