HOUSE OF COMMONS-3
We are seeking one lead developer for the Effective Scrutiny Programme, a programme of internal training designed to support staff who work in select committee teams, particularly those with policy analysis and advisory role. The aims of the program are to improve further the already high quality of service to select committees, provide professional development for policy scrutiny specialists, provide a structured mechanism for sharing and developing our expertise in scrutiny, and inform our practice by engaging with expert contributors from outside Parliament.
Development began in 2019 and one module, on using research evidence for scrutiny, was successfully piloted in 2019 and 2020, with excellent feedback from participants. We are now looking for someone to fill a short-term need to drive development and piloting of one of the remaining modules: either “Understanding Government” or “Planning for and achieving impact”.
This role is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate project planning and delivery skills, achieve concrete outcomes and impact in a short period of time, and deepen your understanding of parliamentary scrutiny. There is no line management responsibility. Your key internal relationships will be with the Head of Guidance and Learning and the Scrutiny Unit Senior Specialist. We welcome applications from candidates seeking a secondment.
In addition to an attractive salary and benefits package, we welcome applications from candidates who wish to work part-time or as part of a job share, while annual leave entitlement starts at 30 days pro rata and increases with length of service up to 35 per annum. Some of the other benefits include interest-free season ticket loan and bicycle loan, access to training and development, in-house gym, onsite nursery, and a Contributory Civil Service Pension Scheme.
Further information on the role and the full criteria can be found on the job description.
We are committed to equality and diversity. We actively encourage applications from people from diverse backgrounds. Our aim is to build a diverse, dedicated, and high-performing workforce to keep the House of Commons running smoothly and to support a thriving parliamentary democracy.
