The VOA provides crucial property valuations and advice to Government and local authorities in England, Wales, and Scotland to support taxation and benefits, enabling the collection of around £60 billion revenue in local taxation alone. An executive agency of HM Revenue and Customs, we employ more than 3,800 people in over 35 locations across Britain.

This is a critical time for the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). We are facing an unprecedented set of challenges and opportunities which are driving the biggest transformation in our recent history. The next few years will be critical as we reshape ourselves to provide our services in a more customer-focused and digitally enabled way.  This is to be achieved against the backdrop of increased demand for our services. These are exciting times to join as we enter into new territory and challenge ourselves to continue to deliver improved services for our customers.

It is essential that the VOA has access to a wide range of skills and experience during what will be a period of fundamental change for the Agency and all who rely on its services. We are now seeking to appoint a Non-Executive Director to the Board to contribute to the development and delivery of the Agency’s strategy. For this role, we are particularly interested in candidates who can bring strong senior leadership experience at Board level from the public sector. We are seeking someone who can use their considerable professional experience to help us deliver on our priorities for our customers and clients.

We are open to a variety of backgrounds and are looking for a range and breadth of experience on our Board. Key areas of priority for us include an appreciation of how central government operates, strategic leadership capability and knowledge of transforming an organisation at scale, ideally in a customer-facing context. We are seeking someone with a collaborative style coupled with an ability to work constructively as a member of a diverse team, valuing diversity and equality of opportunity across the Agency.

If the challenge of change attracts and you are confident that you can bring value whilst making a contribution on a national scale, we look forward to hearing from you.
