Political Activity - Notes -
|The Children’s Commissioner for England is an independent voice for children. Her role is to be the eyes, ears and advocate for children, particularly the most vulnerable, in Whitehall and beyond.
The Commissioner has special responsibility for the rights of children who are in or leaving care, living away from home or receiving social care services. She also speaks for wider groups of children on non-devolved issues including immigration (for the whole of the UK) and youth justice (for England and Wales).
The Commissioner is a Corporation Sole, which means that all legal powers rest with her, and is responsible for all decision-making and governance and as the accounting officer has personal responsibility for maintaining a sound system of governance, internal control and risk management whilst safeguarding public funds.
To support the Commissioner as a Corporation Sole, an Audit and Risk Committee was established to provide a means of independent assurance and objective review of financial systems, financial information, information data security, risk management systems, governance arrangements and internal control mechanisms.
Audit and Risk members do not receive a fee, however they are eligible to claim reasonable expenses for travel and subsistence costs necessarily incurred on the Children’s Commissioner’s business.
The Commissioner is now inviting applications from exceptional individuals, with a wide breadth of experience, to join her Audit and Risk Committee.
Candidates should have an interest in issues affecting children, particularly the most vulnerable, and be interested in the work of the Commissioner’s office.
|The successful candidate must demonstrate the following essential criteria:
