Chief Executive Officer
The Insolvency Service
London based with regular travel to regional hubs
At the Insolvency Service, we believe our principal role is to deliver economic confidence; we do this by supporting those in financial distress, tackling financial wrongdoing and maximising returns to creditors.
We provide the frameworks that deal with insolvency and the financial misconduct that sometimes accompanies or leads to it. Our aim is a corporate and personal insolvency regime which is regarded as fair and that gives businesses and investors confidence to take the commercial risks necessary to support economic growth.
The Insolvency Service has an outstanding reputation, both within the insolvency profession and across Government, as a centre of excellence for operational insolvency work, investigations and enforcement. This truly is an exciting time to be part of the agency. We are an organisation which, over the last year, has seen its public profile raised higher than ever before and has also seen us make great strides on a transformation journey that will see us become more efficient by greatly improving our systems and processes.
Whilst there is no specific requirement for you to have any knowledge of insolvency or experience in the sector, we expect the successful candidate to lead the work of the agency and to drive to completion our ambitious change agenda. You will be an inspirational and first-class leader who will lead a team of highly skilled and dedicated people, working flexibly across the agency to demonstrate your commitment to ensuring they rise to meet new challenges. In the process, you will play a key role in promoting our mission and of delivering economic confidence across the UK.
