The Electoral Commission is the independent body that regulates political campaign finance, sets standards for well-run elections and works to promote public confidence in the democratic process.
We have an exciting opportunity for a Regulatory Support Manager on a fixed term basis until late August 2024.
You’ll lead work to identify and deliver proactive engagement and support opportunities for regulated stakeholders which will have the greatest impact on compliance with the rules. These proactive opportunities could include: workshops, forums, targeted events, roundtables, etc.
You’ll support the Head of Regulatory Support to build and maintain relationships with a diverse range of political parties, campaigners, and other Regulation stakeholders in order to deliver effective, risk-led, constituent, proportionate and robust proactive support tools with the aim of securing compliance with the rules on political finance.
You’ll have excellent collaboration skills and be able to build productive relationships easily with people at all levels and engage effectively with other functions across the organisation. In addition, you will be confident in proposing and initiating new ideas, activities or projects, as well as respond positively and effectively to changing circumstances.
Consultation is crucial to the successful development of the Regulatory Support Team, and you’ll need to be committed to working constructively with all staff, including senior managers; as well as in partnership with a diverse range of external political stakeholders. You will have a strong appreciation of the political environment in which the Commission works.
We offer excellent terms and conditions, including flexible working hours and the opportunity to join the Civil Service pension arrangements (dependent on scheme rules) which include a valuable range of benefits.
