Join the National Statistics Executive Group Shadow Board

Each year, Government Statistical Service (GSS) colleagues of all grades and backgrounds are invited to join the National Statistics Executive Group (NSEG) to bring new and diverse perspectives to discussions. This has been hugely successful, and colleagues have had great things to say about the experience.

In order to encourage further participation, we would like to extend this to the following NSEG sub-committees:

  • Analysis and Evaluation Committee
  • Communications Committee
  • Data Governance and Statistical Design Committee
  • GSS International Committee
  • People Committee
  • Portfolio and Investment Committee
  • Quality Task Force

In addition to the opportunity to attend and contribute to one of the committees, you would also form part of the new NSEG Shadow Board. This would involve providing your views on issues being discussed at NSEG meetings, to support a culture of challenge and debate and champion increased diversity of thought throughout NSEG and its sub-committees.

How to apply

To apply to sit on one of the NSEG sub-committees, and be part of the NSEG Shadow Board, please email national.statistician@statistics.gov.uk by Wednesday 11 November.

Your email should set out:

  • why you are interested in the opportunity
  • the skills you would offer to the committee
  • the diverse perspective you could bring

Please include details of any experience of membership of professional groups or diversity networks you consider may be relevant. Please also confirm your preference of sub-committee.

Please also confirm that your line manager would be prepared to make you available for up to two days a month for a one-year period. Your email should be no longer than 200 words.  You can expand on your expression of interest in a follow-up conversation.
