PwC will act as recruitment consultants and will be tasked with sifting through applications to find the chairman and three independent members of the commission.
The commission is a non-departmental public body charged with running a nominations system for cross-bench peers. The Prime Minister will have no right to reject a nomination made by the commission.
Margaret Jay, leader of the House of Lords, said: ‘It is important that the process of selecting candidates to sit on the Appointments Commission is transparent and open. These posts are not reserved for a chosen few but are open to the best, most suitably qualified candidates.’
The Prime Minister currently nominates cross-benchers, a function that will switch to the commission in the late spring.
