The Secretary of State, working closely with the Chair of the Environment Agency, is seeking to appoint four new members to the Board of the Environment Agency to boost resilience and replace outgoing members.

The Secretary of State wants to attract high-calibre and forward-thinking applicants from diverse backgrounds. Applicants will need to demonstrate they are able to carry out a full range of non-executive responsibilities and have relevant skills, knowledge and expertise.

Board members have the opportunity to shape the strategic vision of the Environment Agency and think in different ways putting net zero, climate adaptation and innovative finance at the heart of its ambitions.

The Environment Agency is a place-based organisation and its Board needs to reflect the communities it represents. We welcome candidates with diverse backgrounds and who can bring a regional perspective and a local understanding. We particularly welcome applications from those who can represent the West Midlands, the North West and the South West.

Board members:

• provide senior strategic leadership to help the organisation focus on creating a better place through climate resilience, the road to net zero and sustainable growth;

• provide relevant professional insight into key corporate or operational business issues;

• attend Board meetings and attend and chair Board committees;

• represent the Environment Agency externally;

• serve as a lead member for one or more of the Environment Agency’s operational areas, supporting senior staff on the delivery of national and local priorities.

The successful candidates must abide by the Nolan principles of public service and the Code of Conduct for Board Members.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate all of the following essential criteria:

• a clear commitment to the Environment Agency’s role in protecting and improving the environment, reducing the risk to communities from flooding and coastal erosion, and promoting sustainable development;

• an ability to question, challenge constructively and influence decision-making as part of the governance of a large and complex organization;

• an ability to analyse issues at a strategic level in ways which are impartial, creative and focused on finding solutions;

• a proven ability to influence and engage a strong and diverse network of people and organisations and the ability to inspire confidence in stakeholders at all levels.

Skills

The Secretary of State is seeking to attract high-calibre applicants from a range of diverse backgrounds who can discharge the full range of non-executive responsibilities.

You may have these skills, or other areas of expertise relevant to the Environment Agency, and applications are welcomed from any candidates who meet the essential criteria for the role.

We are particularly keen to add to the Board in the following areas:

• natural environment and ecology;

• flood and coastal erosion risk management and/or the engineering industry;

• agriculture and/or land management;

• finance and investment, particularly in the private sector.
