Health & Safety Executive for Northern Ireland – Board Members Competition

Interested in helping the Health & Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) play its part in reducing the number of work-related fatalities and improving workplace health in Northern Ireland?


The search has begun for up to four new members for the HSENI Board and applications are welcome from all sections of the community. It is important that people from a wide range of backgrounds take up public appointments so that the Boards of public bodies like HSENI reflect the rich diversity of our society and better understand the needs of the communities they serve.


Members are expected to attend Board meetings and other events, amounting to approximately 11/2 days per month.  In addition the successful candidate will be expected to attend occasional evening engagements and may be required to serve on one or more sub-committees of the Board. Remuneration is £3,770 per annum. The new appointments take effect from 1 October 2014 for three years. 


Members also receive reimbursement for all reasonable travel and subsistence costs, and any dependant-carer expenses incurred whilst undertaking Board duties.


No academic qualifications are required for the posts. If you are a good team player with experience of corporate governance, dealing with strategic issues and have good leadership and communication skills, why not take a look at the application pack. 


The competition is an open one, which involves an application form and interview process.  The closing date for receipt of applications is noon on Friday 30 May 2014.  Appointments are made on merit.
