Terms and Conditions

Terms of Appointment

The appointment which will be made by the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, is a full-time position and will be for a fixed term of up to 5 years. The role is based at Holborn Circus, London.

We are seeking some successful candidates to take up post by early January, although an exact start date may be negotiable.


  • Remuneration for this appointment will be circa £125,000 per annum (more for exceptional candidates) plus a potential bonus of up to 10% based on a range of stretching and measurable objectives;
  • The full remuneration package will be agreed upon nearer the Final Panel dates;
  • Annual leave entitlement offered in line with all new SFGB joiners; and
  • Membership of the standard DC pension scheme offered to all new SFGB joiners.

Conflicts of interest

Applicants, in their supporting letter, must disclose information on personal connections, which, if they were appointed, could lead to a conflict of interest or be perceived as such.

It is very important therefore that all applicants provide appropriate details in their supporting letter of any interests which might be construed as being in conflict with the appointment for which they are applying.  If it appears, from the information provided on the form, that a possible conflict might exist, or arise in the future, this will be fully explored with the applicant with a view to establishing whether it is sufficiently significant to prevent the individual from carrying out the duties of the post.  The panel will do this at interview stage.

Annex 1 - provides information on conflicts to help applicants evaluate whether or not they have a potential conflict.

Diversity and Equality of Opportunity

The Equality Act 2010 legally protects people from discrimination in the workplace and in wider society. DWP is committed to implementing the Act in all recruitment and selection activity.

The Department is committed to providing services which embrace diversity and which promote equality of opportunity.  As an employer, we are also committed to equality and valuing diversity within our workforce.  Our goal is to ensure that these commitments, reinforced by our Values, are embedded in our day-to-day working practices with all our customers, colleagues and partners.  We do not discriminate on the basis of age, disability, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, religion or belief, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, or (in Northern Ireland) community background, working pattern, employment status, gender identity (transgender), caring responsibility or trade union membership.
