Job Title: Review Officer
Working For: Local Government Boundary Commission for England
Salary: £32,766 per annum
Review Officers deliver the Commission’s core function, to review and make recommendations for changes to local authority electoral arrangements, including the number of councillors to be elected to an authority, the pattern and names of wards and the number of councillors to be returned from each ward.
You will lead on your reviews and have autonomy for your work, whilst adhering to the agreed review process and technical guidance. An electoral review takes up to 18 months and you will see the whole process through from initial information gathering and order laying in parliament. You will work closely with the Lead Commissioner for the review, discussing boundary options, council size and keeping them up to date with review progress.
The role is varied over the course of a review and you will conduct a number of activities which we believe makes the role interesting and challenging. All of our Review Officers are excellent communicators – you have to be able to write reports that are published so that councils and members of the public can comment on your proposed electoral arrangements. Review Officers present to the Commission at formal monthly meetings. At these meetings you are expected to advise the Commission of the warding arrangements you think best reflect our statutory criteria.
