The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) is looking to appont 2 Non-Executive Directors

non-executive directorThe 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.

Based in London, though the role can be based remotely. The role is paying commission only at the start but for the right candidate the long term rewards can be tailored to suit. Successful candidate will also enjoy exec producer credit for the film and VIP treatment such as attending first class film festivals such as Cannes, Venice and will be invited to UK premier and set visit. The company recently produced a film debuting in main competition at 2013 Edinburgh Film Festival with a stellar cast, is currently collaborating with Academy Award winning company and affiliated with top festivals and markets such as Cannes and Toronto. The producer's track record includes 218% return to investors for her first feature film project that had a budget of $11m, which was distributed worldwide and remake rights purchased by Universal.
  4. Entrepreneurially-minded C-level individual required to spearhead an exciting and innovative initiative with national and international sales opportunities for an established and successful CIC in the cycling related arena.  The successful candidate will be given a significant degree of authority and responsibility to create a business with highly interesting characteristics of profitability and scalability.  He/she will be expected to take day to day responsibility for the initiative but will receive the necessary level of support from the CIC’s existing management team and board of NEDs.  Expertise in the leisure sector would be an advantage and in the rapid roll out of new initiatives.  It would be especially interesting if they have contacts in and experience of theme parks.  The role would be full time and whilst the initial remuneration package would be tied to performance, once traction has been proved, there is an opportunity to have a package in line with leisure sector norms for the level of responsibility taken.  The role would also offer the opportunity to build a full management and executive team to manage the opportunity.  The role can be based remotely although the candidate would be expected to have regular meetings with the CIC management team, which is based 90 minutes from Manchester.
