Non Executive Directorships

Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency – Non-Executive Directors

Location: Bristol +

Date Posted: 13/03/2020

Closing Date: 14/04/2020

Vacancy Description

Driving supports every aspect of modern life for everybody, every day, whether it is getting to a destination or delivering goods for consumption. Safe and reliable driving and vehicles are essential for public wellbeing, and as a society we expect to drive motor vehicles that are safe and compliant and be on the roads with other safe drivers. In addition, we need to look after our environment to ensure we are playing out part in ensuring low emissions. We look to the DVSA as it plays a vital role in ensuring that the roads of Great Britain are kept safe. From carrying out driving practical and theory tests, to ensuring that MOTs are executed efficiently, the DVSA’s work affects a huge number of motorists’ everyday lives.

With rapid progress in the development of new technologies, we are seeing the DVSA start the process of modernising and transforming many of its core services. These range from ensuring that practical and theory tests remain effective and relevant, to ensuring that MOT and vehicle tests are carried out in a rigorous, customer-friendly way. The way people will travel will change more in the next 10 years than it has in the last 100 years. The DVSA will play a vital role in this revolution, ensuring that the changing needs of drivers, cyclists and vehicles are upheld, and that our road network remains one of the safest in the world.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Board of an organisation which keeps Britain moving. You would be joining the DVSA at an exciting time, with the opportunity to help shape the future of the agency and ensure its continued success. This will mean supporting the executive team in developing the organisation to be equipped for a future where technological transformation will significantly influence mobility.

The DVSA is now seeking to appoint two Non-Executive Directors to the Board who will embrace technological disruption, possess an entrepreneurial spirit and have a passion for harnessing the possibilities that digital transformation plays in driving greater customer insight and intimacy. We seek a Non-Executive Director who will be expected to provide thought leadership in digital transformation and keep abreast of digital transformation trends and innovative approaches to operational excellence, as well as a Non-Executive Director who will have the necessary skills required to chair the audit and risk committee.

Person Specification

In prioritising the financial management and innovation and technology aspects of the brief, the board is open minded regarding the sector(s) from which the successful candidate is drawn, albeit those with some prior knowledge and understanding of DVSA’s activities, or tangentially relevant sectors including, for example, its customer base, gaming, technology, retail, manufacturing or broader industrial markets experience might be best placed to contribute. There is no requirement that candidates have to have a background in the automotive industry, or more broadly in the transport sector.

We are particularly interested in experience in one or more of the following areas to reinforce diversity of thought and perspective, whether as a first-time or experienced Non-Executive Director:

• Expertise and ability to command credibility across stakeholder groups, having worked in a senior executive role at board level delivering transformative results through technology/digital transformation;

• Ability to challenge the DVSA to ensure that it is a truly customer focused organisation, based on proven experience in delivering excellent customer service and satisfaction;

• Operating at board level within a corporate environment with a background of advising, architecting and executing digital transformation strategies;

• Board level experience with considerable, practical post-qualification experience of budgeting, financial control, financial and management accounting and risk management. The new Audit Committee Chair will have worked closely with a board and an audit committee;

• Risk management and experience from a business of scale and complexity;

• The ability to successfully deliver change: experience of transforming business processes to improve efficiency and effectiveness at significantly lower cost.

• We positively welcome applicants from all backgrounds. All public appointments are made on merit following a fair and open competition.
