We want to recruit a highly skilled leader who will succeed Jenny Pyper as the Northern Ireland Executive's principal policy adviser and leader of the Northern Ireland Civil Service.

The role of Head of the Civil Service (HOCS) is right at the very heart of public life and public service in Northern Ireland. It is about brokering relationships at the highest levels, influencing and negotiating in a context of sensitivity and uncertainty. Critically, it is also about visible organisational leadership and management, instilling collective confidence and purpose with tenacity under scrutiny and pressure. There is a premium on being able to connect with people, having strategic vision and managing change.

If you feel you have the necessary skills, experience, energy and resilience, irrespective of your background which may be in any sector or industry, we would like to hear from you.

This is a permanent appointment but it is also available on the basis of a secondment to The Executive Office.

Completed application forms must be submitted no later than 12:00 noon (UK time) on Thursday 15 April 2021.
