Job Description

The International Group (IG) is responsible for promoting and protecting the UK’s economic and fiscal interests overseas. We support the Chancellor and senior officials in building relations with key international partners and represent the UK in the EU, G7, G20, IMF (International Monetary Fund), Paris Club, FATF (Financial Action Taskforce), EIB (European Investment Bank), AIIB (Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank) and EBRD (European Bank for Reconstruction and Development). We also analyse macroeconomic developments at a country, regional and global level; take forward the Treasury’s interests in specific issues from counter illicit finance and asset freezing to climate change, energy; and ensure value for money from the EU budget and DfID spending. IG is also responsible for continuing European business, for example participation in European meetings and strategic work contributing to the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.

International Group recognises the value a diverse workforce brings to our work, and welcomes applicants from all backgrounds. Although an important part of some roles, not all roles in IG require international travel. We actively encourage flexible working practices, including part time working and job-sharing so please feel free to discuss different working patterns with the recruiting line manager or relevant deputy director.

We are at the heart of interactions with the EU both in terms of financial settlement payments, and future relationship planning through programme participation. We have significant interaction with the Chancellor and other Ministers. We are a collaborative, friendly and high performing team of around 16 officials from a diverse range of analytical and policy backgrounds. We lead on paying and auditing the financial settlement, and accountability to Parliament and the National Audit Office. We are also responsible for future programme participation and annual reporting on payments to and receipts from the EU. We work closely with a wide range of partners in Whitehall (especially the Cabinet Office (CO), Number 10, Office for Budget Responsibility, and spending departments), and overseas (especially the Commission and UKMis Brussels). We draw on accounting and audit expertise from external consultants.
Responsibilities This is an ambitious and exciting role leading on the implementation of the UK’s £35-39 billion financial settlement. You will lead 3 sub-branches with 3 Senior Policy Advisors/Range Es (Analysis, Policy/Strategy, Assurance), 4 Policy Advisors/Range Ds and a Policy Apprentice. You’ll set the direction of the branches work, and balance fast moving emerging policy issues with delivering on key long-term policy goals. You will need to be comfortable moving quickly between sophisticated technical detail, strategic policy thinking and handling politically sensitive issues.

1. Advise Ministers and Senior Officials (including the Permanent Secretary, the Treasury’s Accounting Officer) on implementing the financial settlement.

2. Develop, negotiate, and implement strategy to ensure the UK does not pay more or receive less than is required under the financial provisions of the Withdrawal Agreement.

3. Oversee the analytical work of the European Financing team, including the EU contribution forecast for the OBR, external reporting on the size of the settlement, and analysis for decision making (e.g. the UK’s future financial relationship with t
