Who We Are

The Officers of the Group are elected annually by the BGIPU Members at the Annual General Meeting. The Officers head the Executive Committee and liaise between the Committee and the Secretariat in coordinating the programmed activities of the Group. 

The Executive Committee, led by the Officers govern the work and activities of the Group and are responsible for programme content and the financial management of the Group. The Committee meets regularly to discuss and decide upon the programmed activities of the group. 

The BGIPU Secretariat has the primary goal of providing policy advice and administrative support for the activities of the Group.  Its main task, under the leadership of the Director, is to facilitate the engagement of UK Parliamentarians with their counterparts overseas. 

The BGIPU Secretariat has a staff of 8 people working on the Parliamentary Estate managing the activities of the Group. From time to time vacancies will arise and we will recruit through application and merit-based procedures broadly in line with House of Commons practice. When vacancies are available information on positions can be found here
