Job Description

Committee Clerk (x2)

The Committee Office is one of the largest House of Lords offices, supporting around 20 select committees at a time, spanning a wide range of subjects. Its work ranges from year-long inquiries on cross-cutting subjects to technical, but no less important, shorter inquiries on legislation, including on draft bills. Some of the work is carried out jointly with the House of Commons.

The Committee Office has a strong track record of innovation. The work typically involves members of the public (as witnesses) as well as members of the House, and new ways are being sought of engaging with the public and presenting the results of committee work in more readily accessible ways. 

The Purpose

The clerk of a committee takes overall responsibility for the delivery of effective support and advice to that committee.

The Person

The successful candidate will have the following skills/experience: 

Briefing

Give timely and sound advice to the chairman and members on the policy and procedure of the committee’s work.
Brief new committee members.
 Meetings

Oversee the process of making arrangements for meetings to run smoothly and efficiently.
 Reports

Prepare draft reports in line with Committee Office style, which reflect the evidence received and the views of committee members.

Be accountable for presenting high-quality draft reports, which need little or no editing.
