The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is responsible for delivering the Industrial Strategy, which requires maximising investment opportunities and bolstering UK interests.

BEIS is creating a new Group focussed on enterprise and investment and is seeking an outstanding leader with extensive private sector experience to drive this agenda. As a member of the Department’s executive committee, reporting to the Permanent Secretary, Alex Chisholm, you will focus on increasing the Department’s engagement with businesses, from corporates to SMEs, as well as enhancing business capability within BEIS. You will spend a significant amount of your time meeting with businesses around the UK, with the aim of understanding their greatest needs and advising on how Government can best support them.

You will be an exceptional leader with a strong track record in the private sector, bringing wide cross-economy experience and a well-established network. You will be able to build and maintain new networks with a wide range of stakeholders, winning the trust of those who may have differing or conflicting views. Commercial experience is required to help lead BEIS’ activity on business investment, ensuring positive outcomes for UK plc and the taxpayer. Impactful and dextrous communications skills will be essential both to distil complexity and to allow for greatest engagement with a wide range of stakeholders, internally and externally.
