A unique opportunity for leaders from across different fields to bring their experience to bear in helping to inform the Commission’s future work programme.

A new recruitment process is underway to appoint up to three new members to the National Infrastructure Commission. The collective role of Commissioners is provide expert, impartial advice to the government on infrastructure. They play the leading role in shaping and developing the recommendations made by the Commission in both the National Infrastructure Assessment and in specific studies, working in close partnership with colleagues across the Commission secretariat.

Commissioners are leaders in their field, with senior level experience in a specific infrastructure sector such as energy or digital communications, or a related field such as economics, engineering or project finance. The current members of the Commission are drawn from the worlds of policy, economics, engineering, technology, academia, business and architecture. This recruitment process aims to find Commissioners with particular experience in the energy sector, in the relationship between infrastructure and the environment, or with experience in infrastructure policy at local or regional level.

More information about the recruitment process is available on the government’s Public Appointments website. Applications close on 20 August.
