U.K. Seeks Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration

The recruitment process for a new Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration (ICIBI) has been launched by the U.K. government’s Home Office.

The role provides independent scrutiny of the Home Office’s border and immigration functions, helping to drive improvements so it works as effectively as possible.

The appointment of the Independent Chief Inspector will be through a full and open competition, and will be run in accordance with the Governance Code on Public Appointments. This will involve an advisory assessment panel, with an independent chair, that will review the applications and interview shortlisted candidates. The appointment will also be subject to pre-appointment scrutiny.

The government has adapted the recruitment process around the U.K.’s coronavirus restrictions, which includes planning for remote interviews.

Applications for the post will be open until 11:00pm British Summer Time on June 4. David Bolt has been the Independent Chief Inspector since May 2015 and will remain in post until October 2020.
