The Electoral Commission

Chief Executive




The Role

We are the Electoral Commission, the independent body which oversees elections and regulates political finance in the UK. We promote public confidence in the democratic process and ensure its integrity. A small yet high-impact organisation, our work is wide-reaching and of significant public interest.

A compelling opportunity has arisen to lead our dedicated team as our next CEO. The role of the Commission has risen in importance - for politics, for the electoral community, and for the voter. From social media’s impact on political debate to increasing devolution of election powers, our work is at the heart of some of the most passionately discussed topics of the day.

You will inspire and lead our expert workforce, harnessing their commitment and capability to deliver on our strategic plans. You will ensure that the Commission is respected and trusted wherever it operates, building relationships across the breadth of our stakeholder community.

A sophisticated communicator with first-rate influencing skills, you are an experienced board-level operator with a track record of leadership, strategic thinking and innovation in a complex environment. Confident under scrutiny and resilient under pressure, you will impress us with your political acumen, with your sound judgment, and with your integrity.
