Non Executive Directorships

Chairperson – Export Guarantees Advisory Council (EGAC)

Location: London

Date Posted: 13/02/2019

Closing Date: 03/03/2019

Vacancy Description

The Export Guarantees Advisory Council (EGAC) is an Expert Committee which advises the Secretary of State on UK Export Finance’s (UKEF) operations.

The Council normally provides advice to the Secretary of State through UK Export Finance officials, usually at meetings attended by UK Export Finance’s Chief Executive.  The Council addresses its views directly to the Ministers on any subject where it deems it appropriate to do so.  It meets with the Minister once a year, or more if necessary.

The EGAC is seeking a Chairperson who has experience of the practical application of ethical policies pertinent to UKEF (environment, social and human rights, anti-bribery and corruption, sustainable lending), particularly within a business and/or government context.

Person Specification

Experience of commerce and international trade, the private export finance and credit insurance market and debt/capital markets; business or governmental trade experience of the following:

  • human rights;
  • environment and social issues;
  • fraud and financial crime; and
  • sectors where UKEF typically works or is looking to support in the future (e.g. renewable energy).

An understanding of UKEF’s purpose and business and its role of supporting exports while at the same time complying with policies on ethical matters;

Familiarity with the OECD ‘Recommendation of the Council on Common Approaches for Officially Supported Export Credits and Environmental and Social Due Diligence (The ‘Common Approaches’), the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (the Ruggie ‘Protect, Respect and Remedy Framework’), the Equator Principles, and related international agreements which may be associated with the role of export credit agencies;

Familiarity with the OCED recommendations in relation to export credits on anti-bribery and sustainable lending an understanding of the role of an advisory council, including its relationship to Ministers.

Suitable candidates will demonstrate the following personal qualities:

  • An ability to contribute to the work of the EGAC through giving advice, challenge, constructive criticism and support;
  • An ability to work effectively in managing positive relationships with stakeholders that adds value to an organisation; and
  • A commitment to attend all meetings and undertake the necessary preparation.

Chairperson Specific Experience & Tasks

  • experience of chairing meetings
  • organising agendas
  • meeting with officials between meetings to ensure the proper running of the Council
  • carrying out an annual appraisal of Council members
  • attend the main Board once a year and meet with the main Board Chair as needed
  • participate in the recruitment process for new Council members

Additional Information

In practice, the Council primarily concerns itself with providing advice on the ethical policies applied by UKEF in the conduct of its business related to anti bribery and corruption, environmental, social and human rights risks and impacts of the projects which it supports, sustainable lending and transparency (including freedom of information).

The Council does not have any executive powers.  It reviews past decisions UKEF has made to support export transactions and provides advice on the decision-making and, in particular, the application of ethical policies.  It does not comment on cases under consideration for a decision.

UKEF informs the Council of developments related to relevant international agreements and policies set by Ministers which guide UKEF operations so that these can be taken into account by the Council in providing its advice.

To help inform its work, from time to time, the Council meets stakeholder groups:  export and trade associations (for example, the CBI, the British Exporter’s Association, UK Finance) and civil society organisations (for example, Campaign Against Arms Trade, Jubilee Debt, The Corner House, Transparency International and WWF-UK).

The Council operates to terms of reference.  It meets four times a year and the minutes of its meetings are published.  The Council publishes an Annual Report of its activities.

 

How to Apply

Applicants should provide a copy of their c.v. together with a covering letter (no more than two A4 pages) explaining why you are interested in the position and how you meet the criteria outlined in the personal specification.

Applicants should ensure they highlight their experience in dealing with:

  • human rights;
  • environment and social issues;
  • fraud and financial crime; and
  • sectors where UKEF typically works or is looking to support in the future (e.g. renewable energy).

You should also complete the Conflicts of Interest form and the Monitoring form.  The Monitoring form will be kept separately from your application and Conflicts of Interest form, and will not be seen by the selection panel in order to meet the Cabinet Office’s Government Code on Public Appointments
