Process to appoint new Commissioner begins – NIC
The work of appointing a new Commissioner to join the National Infrastructure Commission starts today with the opening of the formal application process. The successful candidate will join the Commission at an exciting time as it works towards the UK’s second National Infrastructure Assessment, to be published later in the autumn. They will fill the vacancy created when former Commissioner Bridget Rosewell stepped down earlier this year, bringing the Commission back up to its full complement of ten members.
Candidates for the role will be leaders in their field and capable of providing expert, impartial advice to the government on a wide variety of infrastructure matters: Candidates with extensive experience and expertise in transport at a national and regional level are encouraged to apply. As a Commissioner, the appointee will have the opportunity to engage a broad range of stakeholders to communicate the work of the Commission, help develop a broader consensus on the future shape of UK infrastructure, and work closely with our secretariat team on both Commission’s ongoing work programme as well as specific studies.
In line with the Commission’s commitment to equality and diversity, applications are welcomed from people from all backgrounds.
The deadline for submitting applications for the Commissioner role is 11pm on Wednesday 29 March. More information about the role is available on the gov.uk public appointments page.
