UKGI is looking for an experienced individual to become part of the Non-Executive Director Team
UKGI will be formed by bringing together the two bodies that currently manage most of the taxpayer stakes in businesses across the economy - the Shareholder Executive (ShEx) and UK Financial Investments (UKFI).
The new UKGI will be wholly owned by HM Treasury and will launch in April 2016.
The new company will make it easier for government experts to work together in order to deliver a key part of the government’s long term plan – the sale of a wide range of publicly-owned assets in a way that secures good value for money for taxpayers. The new company will also help the government achieve its aim to run large, publicly-owned delivery bodies more efficiently.
The board of UKGI will be chaired by Robert Swannell (current Chair of ShEx).
- To provide strategic oversight of UKGI’s management team and staff.
- To ensure that UKGI executes its objectives in accordance with its mandate and the highest standards of corporate governance and accountability.
- Board members may be required to chair or be a member of UKGI’s three committees. Candidates will be expected to be experienced in investment management, as a principal and corporate governance. This will most likely have been gained through private equity or related investment experience.
The preferred means of application is by email to recruitment@UKFI.co.uk, quoting the reference ‘Non-Executive recruitment’.
