Job Ref: AT9494

Play your part in supporting a healthy democracy

Created in 2009, IPSA was the world’s first fully independent regulator of MPs’ financial remuneration.  IPSA’s three main responsibilities are to regulate MPs’ business costs and expenses; to determine MPs’ pay and pension arrangements; and to provide financial support to MPs in carrying out their parliamentary functions.

Now is an exciting time for the organisation, as it moves to a new phase in its development, offering improved levels of service to MPs and their staff within a strong and user-friendly regulatory framework.  Getting this right is crucial for a well-functioning Parliament and a healthy democracy.

We are looking for an experienced leader who will oversee the transformation of IPSA as an ambitious and modern authority. The successful candidate will demonstrate a clear understanding of the challenges facing IPSA and Parliament, combined with a genuine passion for, and experience of, organisational and cultural change. 

We are seeking candidates from a broad range of backgrounds, in particular senior individuals with strategic expertise gained in customer-centric organisations, with a proven ability to bring about change in complex environments, a commitment to diversity and inclusion, and excellent communication skills.

They will be confident operating to the highest levels of public accountability, under public, political and media scrutiny. They will personify integrity, trust and resilience.
