The Industrial Development Advisory Board (IDAB) advises Ministers on applications from companies proposing to start capital investment projects in the Assisted Areas in England.
IDAB is an advisory non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
IDAB is a statutory body which advises the Secretary of State on large business/industrial investment and intervention decisions being considered by the Government (specifically under sections 7 and 8 of the Industrial Development Act (IDA) 1982).
As a member on the IDAB, you will have a statutory role of advising Government Ministers on whether financial support should be provided to UK businesses.
Board Members’ have both statutory and non-statutory responsibilities.
As a Member of the Industrial Development Advisory Board, the function is to bring independent oversight, support and constructive challenge to the Board.
Government Departments may also wish to use the skills and expertise of IDAB Members and the independent review role the Board provides. In this instance, the Board Member may be asked to provide advice on commercial and financial advice to large commercial projects that fall outside IDAB’s statutory remit (e.g. launch investment cases) where the Department considers that the Member’s expertise would enable the project to improve its decision making. For this reason we are seeking Members with an appreciation of the Government’s strategic intent and programmes, including the Industrial Strategy, sector deals and the Digital Strategy.
BEIS is committed to providing equal opportunities for all, irrespective of race, age, disability, gender, marital status, religion, sexual orientation, transgender and working patterns and to the principle of public appointments on merit with independent assessments, openness and transparency of process.
BEIS offers professional training courses on public sector finance and governance for those new to the public sector.
