The Department for Communities has launched a competition to appoint a new Chief Commissioner for the Charity Commission NI.

Competition to appoint a new Chief Commissioner for the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland

As the independent regulator of charities in Northern Ireland, the Commission plays a key role in their development. The charity sector supports and provides vital services to people across all our communities, with charities ranging from small local groups, to those that also operate nationally and internationally.

The Chief Commissioner role is critical to the success of the Commission, providing strong leadership and strategic direction in a changing context for charity regulation here. The Chief Commissioner is also chair of the Commission's Board, ensuring it meets its corporate responsibilities as well as overseeing delivery of the changes arising from the Department's response to the Independent Review of Charity Regulation published in 2022.

This position requires someone with a passion for change, and who is a strong and inclusive leader to champion the work of the organisation and the Board, whilst embedding positive values and behaviours.  Those with the requisite experience, determination, vision and judgement are encouraged to apply.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 22 March 2023.

Further information, including an application pack, can be obtained at, by e-mailing or telephoning 028 9081 9417.
