The Department for the Economy (DfE) has launched a public appointments competition for five members of the board of Tourism Northern Ireland (TNI).
The TNI board has corporate responsibility for ensuring that TNI fulfils the aims and objectives set by the Department and approved by the Minister, and for promoting the efficient, economic and effective use of staff and other resources by TNI.
No specific academic qualifications are required for the post. However, the Department wishes to appeal to people of all ages from a wide range of backgrounds and experience across the community, voluntary, business or public sector, who can bring a wide range of skills and experience to the role. DfE would particularly welcome applications from people with a disability, those from minority ethnic communities and young people, as they are currently under-represented on the board. The Department is operating a Guaranteed Interview Scheme in this competition for applicants with a disability.
This is an open competition, which involves an application form and interview. The closing date for receipt of applications is noon (GMT) on 8 December 2022. Appointments are made on merit.
The initial appointments will be effective from 1 April 2023 for a term of three years.
An application pack with full details and guidance may be obtained from Public Appointments Unit, Department for the Economy, Adelaide House, 39-49 Adelaide Street, Belfast BT2 8FD.
