The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) is looking to appont 2 Non-Executive Directors
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) is an executive agency of the Department for Transport (DfT), the body responsible for delivering the Government’s transport strategy.
Since 2002, the DVLA has consistently developed new digital services making it easier for customers to transact with us. This digital direction is the core of our operational change programme and has already delivered significant savings by introducing services that have reduced the volume of paper transactions by 58 per cent. But we need to do more and have set ourselves challenging objectives on our way to becoming an organisation that is digital by default. Do you have the skills to help us achieve those objectives?
Our registers of over 44 million driver records and 37 million vehicle records underpin the activities undertaken by DVLA, the police and others to maintain the high levels of road safely experienced in the UK and for the effective collection of more than £6billion of Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) for the Treasury. DVLA registers are also used to deliver other departmental and government initiatives such as traffic management and reducing carbon emissions.
We put our customers are at the heart of our business and they drive everything we do. As a consequence we expect our digital services and our people to exceed our customers’ expectations and we want to be seen as a world class organisation in managing the collection, storage and provision of accurate data relating to driving entitlements and vehicles and in the collection of motoring taxes.
We operate in a challenging, multi-stakeholder environment and if you have a strong customer focus and expertise in digital transformation, modern technology procurement or major change gained at Board level in large or complex organisations, then we’d like to hear from you.
We wish to appoint two individuals to our Executive Board who will play key roles in our corporate governance model by offering constructive, strategic challenge to the executive members of the Board. You will also serve on the DVLA Audit Committee.
This appointment will be for an initial period of three years with a time commitment of approximately 60 days per year, representing preparation for and attendance at monthly Board meetings and quarterly Audit Committee meetings. Extensions to this appointment are possible and we may ask you to work with other DVLA groups in which case your time commitment could increase by mutual agreement.
A daily fee is payable and expenses will be reimbursed at standard Civil service rates
Closing date: 5pm 19 August 2013.
