Expressions of Interest - Chairpersons / Board Members
From time to time when vacancies arise on the boards of Agencies/Bodies under the Department’s aegis they will be advertised on the state boards website (external link) .
The state boards website (external link) offers a single dedicated point of contact to all prospective candidates to express their interest in joining the State Boards under the Aegis of all Government Departments. This portal facilitates:
- the advertising of opportunities to express an interest in State Board vacancies and the terms and conditions pertaining to same,
- the registration by prospective Board members of their general interest in a position on a State Board
- and the sending of alerts to those registered on the stateboards.ie website of Board vacancies as and when they arise.
This Department will no longer accept applications for membership of State Boards, and accordingly prospective applicants should make their applications solely via the state boards web portal (external link) .
That website also has a dedicated e-mail inbox for members of the public who have questions about the process or how to apply: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guidelines governing appointments to state boards (external link) may be found on the website of the Public Appointments Service .
All appointments will be made in accordance with the legislation governing appointments to each body. The Minister will not be restricted to considering only those who have applied under the expression of interest. In considering applications due regard will be given to Government policy on gender balance and diversity on State Boards (external link).
