Public Appointment Vacancies – Appointment of 7 new Board Members to the Board of Invest NI – Closing date 10 January 2014
DETI have advertised an open competition to recruit 7 new Invest NI Board Members on 5 & 6 December 2013 in the three main local papers. The process involves an application form and interview process. Appointments are made on merit and applications are welcome from all sections of society.
Remuneration of £11,755 a year is payable. The time commitment is approximately 3 days per month including monthly Board meetings, ad hoc Committee meetings and attendance at occasional evening engagements.
It is important that people from a wide range of backgrounds take up public appointments so that the Boards of public bodies reflect the rich diversity of our society and better understand the needs of the communities they serve.
Women, people with a disability and ethnic minority communities are currently under-represented on the Invest NI Board and applications from members of these groups would be particularly welcome.
