Interim OEP vacancies 27 May 2021

There are currently four live vacancies offering an exciting opportunity to join the senior management team within the Interim Office for Environmental Protection (OEP)

 
What is the Interim OEP?

The Interim Office for Environmental Protection is the non–statutory form of the Office for Environmental Protection which is being established by the Environment Bill later this year. It will provide independent oversight of the government’s environmental progress and accelerate the foundation of the full body.

The Interim OEP will be set up as a division within Defra, although operating as independently as possible. We intend for staff working in the Interim OEP to transfer employment to the statutory OEP once it is legally established. More details on this are in the candidate packs for the individual roles.

The OEP will be the cornerstone of our environmental governance system now we have left the EU. We are keen to recruit the best people, from any background, to help grow the organisation from the ground up, influencing how the OEP will operate in its crucial early years of existence.

The OEP headquarters will be based in Worcester although a range of flexible working options will be supported. There is also an expectation of regular attendance at the Worcester office.

The roles

You will find more information on the roles in the candidate packs via the links below:

Grade 6 – OEP – Head of Finance and Corporate Services

Grade 7 – OEP – Principal IT and Digital Officer

Grade 7 – OEP – Principal Procurement and Supplier Officer

Grade 7 – OEP – Principal Human Resources Officer

There will be a candidate information webinar for these exciting roles, held at 16:00 on 2nd June 2021. Those interested in this opportunity can book on by following this link to Eventbrite.

Defra is committed to recruiting a diverse workforce. Read more about Defra’s Equality and Diversity commitments.
