Job Function: Non Executive Director
The National Audit Office (NAO) supports the Comptroller and Auditor General (C&AG) in his role as the statutory auditor of government departments, the BBC and a wide range of other public bodies, reporting directly to Parliament. Independent of government, the NAO scrutinises public spending for Parliament and investigates major government projects and programmes. The resulting reports support high profile inquiries by the Public Accounts Committee and other select committees of the House of Commons and play an important role in improving the use of public money and outcomes for citizens.
The term of office of two current non-executive members of the NAO Board will come to an end on 31 December 2020 and the Board is now seeking to appoint two new non-executive members to succeed them.
These are important roles within a high-profile organisation. The non-executive members of the Board play an active role in contributing to the Board’s strategy development, corporate assurance and governance objectives thereby ensuring the NAO is an effective and efficient organisation.
Candidates will be passionate about the role of public audit in helping to improve public service delivery. They will be politically astute, with an awareness of the workings of local and / or national government and the context of the NAO’s work and Parliamentary accountability. They will have experience at senior executive and/ or board level and will bring strong intellect, sound judgement, common sense and diplomacy. The successful candidates will be able to help shape strategy, develop robust governance arrangements and monitor performance.
