UK Government begins recruitment for 3 new EHRC commissioners

Recruitment for the roles begins today and applications will be taken until 22 July. The selection process will be conducted in accordance with the Governance Code for Public Appointments.

The successful candidates will take up their roles between November 2022 and January 2023.

The EHRC is an independent statutory body with the responsibility to encourage equality and diversity, eliminate unlawful discrimination, and protect and promote the human rights of everyone in Britain.

The Equality Hub sponsors the EHRC and as a result the Minister for Women and Equalities has statutory responsibility for appointing 10 to 15 Commissioners, including the Chair and the Wales and Scotland Commissioners.

Commissioners are responsible for working with the Chair and Chief Executive to:

  • set the strategic direction of the EHRC
  • scrutinise the EHRC’s performance
  • support the Chair in holding the Chief Executive to account
