Vacancy Description

 

The AFPRB are seeking three new members, therefore, if you have the required experience in more than one of the person specifications, please feel free to apply for both or all of the roles as appropriate.

The AFPRB provides independent, evidence-based advice on Armed Forces’ pay to the Prime Minister and Secretary of State for Defence.  In making recommendations, it takes into account the need to recruit, retain and motivate people in the context of Service life, Government policies for improving services, funding, the inflation target and the need for Armed Forces’ pay to be broadly comparable with civilians.

Person Specification

 

Ex-Military Member – Ref. 23689a

 

For this role, we are looking for an individual who can apply intellectual rigour to the remuneration of Service Personnel, based on relevant recent military experience.  The appointee will have significant experience of working in the military at Senior Board level (1* and above). The successful candidate will also need to demonstrate the following essential criteria:

 

  • The ability to analyse and evaluate large amounts of detailed written and oral information, and to use it for decision making.
  • The ability to work effectively on a board, providing evidence-based arguments and listening to the views of other members.
  • Strong influencing and communication skills; in particular, the ability to relate to a diverse range of stakeholders, and command their confidence, including Ministers, Review Body colleagues, Senior Government officials and those within the remit group.
  • Understanding of the broader context of changes in public sector management and pay, and the ability to assess how these might affect service personnel.
  • High standards of corporate and personal conduct.

 

Candidates must be a British or Commonwealth citizen or a Republic of Ireland national. An ex-military candidate should have left the service no more than 5 years ago, and – if now serving as a part-time reservist – would need to resign their position before taking up the AFPRB role to avoid any conflict of interest.

 

Private Sector Member – Ref. 23689b

 

For this role, we are looking for an individual who can apply intellectual rigour to the remuneration of Service Personnel, based on relevant recent private sector experience.  The appointee will have significant experience of working in the private sector at Senior Board level (deputy Director and above). The successful candidate will also need to demonstrate the following essential criteria:

 

  • The ability to analyse and evaluate large amounts of detailed written and oral information, and to use it for decision making.
  • The ability to work effectively on a board, providing evidence-based arguments and listening to the views of other members.
  • Strong influencing and communication skills; in particular, the ability to relate to a diverse range of stakeholders, and command their confidence, including Ministers, Review Body colleagues, Senior Government officials and those within the remit group.
  • Understanding of the broader context of changes in public sector management and pay, and the ability to assess how these might affect service personnel.
  • High standards of corporate and personal conduct.

 

Candidates must be a British or Commonwealth citizen or a Republic of Ireland national.
