Introduction

Thank you for your interest in becoming the Finance Director of the House of Commons. This website will give you lots of detail about the post, but I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about the House Service and the background to this new role.

The House of Commons is a complex and fascinating place.  It cherishes traditions that date back to the earliest days of our democracy with all the demands of a modern, inclusive and dynamic workplace. With a workforce of over 2,600 people and an annual budget of over £500 million, the House of Commons Service covers multiple skills from baristas to barristers, from researchers to security officers. It also welcomes and manages more than a million visitors a year who come to see the wonderful neo-gothic palace and witness our Parliament in action.

In the early part of 2019, the current Managing Director of Corporate Services, Myfanwy Barrett, will leave the service of the House in order to relocate away from London and to start a new career as a non-executive director in the public sector and visual arts.  Given this opportunity, we decided to restructure the Corporate Services team, covering finance and HR, with two new teams, one of which will be headed by a Finance Director.  This new role will be a member of the House of Commons Executive Board.  This will give the professionalism a presence at the Board, helping to take forward some of the most important finance objectives.

So I am looking for an inspiring leader who will have the opportunity to shape and deliver an agenda and vision in an organisation at an exciting time of significant change.  In return we can offer you a truly unique and inspirational working environment, a challenging and varied agenda which will develop your professional and leadership skills, and the chance to play a very active role in supporting our thriving parliamentary democracy.

Sir David Natzler
Clerk of the House and Head of the House of Commons Service
