Department for Transport
The DVSA plays a vital role in ensuring that the roads of Great Britain are kept safe. From carrying out driving practical and theory tests, to ensuring that MOT’s are executed efficiently, the DVSA’s work affects a huge number of motorists’ everyday lives.
With rapid progress in the development of new technologies, we expect to see more changes to transportation in the next 10 years than there have been in the previous 100 years. It is anticipated that we will see driverless cars on our roads from 2021, meaning that the way in which people travel will change substantially in the coming years. The DVSA will play a vital role in this revolution, ensuring that the changing needs of drivers, cyclists and vehicles are upheld, and that our road network remains one of the safest in the world.
In the role of Non-Executive Director, you will support and challenge the Board to ensure that the agency is delivering against its strategic goals during a critical period, using your experience and expertise to provide advice and opinion on a range of management, operational and governance matters.
You will be an experienced Non-Executive or Board-level leader, with the interpersonal and communication skills required to develop positive and constructive relationships with a range of stakeholders. Experience within the automotive sector is not essential, but you will need to demonstrate a track record of supporting customer-focused organisation in placing customer service and satisfaction at the heart of business strategy. An understanding and experience of the delivery of digital projects is highly desirable.
