The process to recruit for the position of Director of the National Cyber Security Centre will be conducted by the Public Appointments Service (PAS). The PAS is recognised as a centre of excellence for public service recruitment and selection across a range of posts from entry level to professional, technical and senior executive positions.

The recruitment process will be conducted in accordance with the codes of practice of the Commission for Public Service Appointments, and the PAS will ensure that the process adheres to the principles of fairness, quality and recruitment on merit.

As is typically the case with specialist and senior roles, and was the case when the position of Director was originally advertised in 2020, the role will be advertised internationally through a range of websites and through the PAS’s social media connections, or any other channels that the PAS feel would be beneficial to ensure the best candidates are encouraged to apply.
