All tender information MUST be submitted through the CCS eSourcing Portal.
UKRI are going out to tender for an executive search agency in order to:
• Reach and attract a larger and more diverse pool of candidates than would be possible by using normal public appointments processes.
• Enrich the candidate pool with a breadth of business experience and background that our standard advertising approach on the public appointments website would not achieve.
The overall objective for the recruitment campaign on which the executive search agency will be delivering is to appoint an exemplary candidate to the IUK Executive Chair by Christmas 2019 and UKRI board non executive members by October 2019. The objectives to be achieved by the executive search agency are:
• Search, advertising and attraction campaign/s launched and completed in the agreed timeframes, delivered in the manner agreed in advance with UKRI and BEIS, and within the cost agreed – this should include the achievement of demonstrable efficiencies and synergies achieved through working across both recruitments;
• Applicant pools accepted by the Selection Panels as fulfilling the agreed person criteria;
• Provision of a diverse pool of applicants for each role reflecting Gender, Race and Disability as well as other protected characteristics and diversity of background and experience; this diversity profile should match as closely as possible the Government’s aspirations for diversity on public sector boards: 50% male and 50% female and 14% Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority (BAME);
• Generation of a sufficiently large and high-calibre pool of applicants that at least five are credible for the IUK role and 10 are credible for the NED roles, and at sift are put forward for interview;
• All campaign and data management complies with spirit and letter of GDPR guidelines;
Bidders should refer to the tender documentation attached to this notice for full details of this requirement.
As part of the strategic alliance between UK Shared Business Services Ltd (UK SBS) and Crown Commercial Service (CCS), UK SBS will be using the CCS eSourcing Suite for this procurement.
