Independent Public Bodies jobs

Welcome to the home of Independent Public Bodies Jobs

There are number of publicly funded Independent Public Bodies in the UK that operate either entirely independently of Government or at the very least are arms length operations from Government.  

They are not created to carry out ministerial orders or policy, instead they are self determining and independent.  They are not part of the government with many established by statute and are accountable to Parliament rather than the Government.  This allows them to enjoy a degree of flexibility and operate outside of the political environment.
