Committee Advertises For Specialist Advisers

16 September 2010

The Culture Media and Sport Select Committee requires a Broadcasting Expert and a Creative Industries Expert to provide specialist advice on a consultancy basis

The Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee is seeking applications for two specialist advisers, covering respectively broadcasting and the creative industries.

Applicants should be prepared to provide a readily available source of expert and technical advice to Committee members, including in relation to particular Committee inquiries within their field of expertise. Successful applicants will work closely with Committee support staff in the preparation of advice, briefing material and Reports for the Committee.

John Whittingdale, Chairman of the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee, said:

Specialist Advisers can provide invaluable assistance to the Committee on these two important and technical subjects. In return, they can gain an insight into the work of Parliament, and the vital scrutiny function of a Select Committee.

The appointments are for 12 months, with the option of renewal at the end of this period. Advisers are paid for the days they work for the committee plus expenses. Rates are dependent upon experience and knowledge.

Anyone who is interested in taking on either of the two specialist adviser roles, is asked to provide a statement of no more than 750 words why they consider they would be an appropriate candidate and to send that statement, along with a copy of their CV, to the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee at by Thursday 14 October.
