UK Government Investments (UKGI) is leading an exercise to appoint up to five Non-Executive Board Members to Boards across the UKGI portfolio on behalf of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Recruitment advisor support is required to achieve this.
UKGI, formerly known as the Shareholder Executive, is a wholly owned company of HM Treasury and is the UK Government’s centre of excellence in corporate finance and corporate governance. Its role is to manage Government’s shareholdings of businesses, often on behalf of Government departments and provide corporate finance expertise and advice within Government.
It is expected that the successful supplier will manage the search from procuring candidates to assisting with preparation for final interviews, carrying out pre-appointment checks and appointing the successful candidates to the roles.
The successful supplier is expected to have the capacity to fully manage the executive search and selection activity. Adhering to the role specifications, they will be expected to advise UKGI on candidate targeting and source candidates through market research, providing a long list and then a short list of prospective candidates as well as providing feedback to candidates. The successful supplier will also need to support the UKGI team and the candidates throughout any interviews, undertake any necessary referencing and pre-appointment checks, and ahead of UKGI making any recommendations to the relevant BEIS Minister. There will be no requirement for any psychometric testing of candidates.
The successful supplier will be responsible for the full range of executive search and selection activity from advising on active candidate targeting, advert design and placement and thoroughly researching the market place, longlisting and shortlisting, interviews, any necessary pre-appointment scrutiny or referencing, and ultimately providing feedback to candidates. UKGI require a supplier with capacity and expertise in actively searching for candidates, over and above any core ability to manage responses to an advert (which is required by Cabinet Office public appointments guidance).
