Competition to appoint new members to the Board of Tourism NI

Competition to appoint new members to the Board of Tourism Northern Ireland begins.

Tourism NI is responsible for the development of Northern Ireland as a tourist destination as well as being responsible for the promotion and marketing of Northern Ireland as a tourist destination within Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. TNI’s vision is to confidently and passionately champion the development and promotion of the Northern Ireland experience.

Individuals who have the essential skills of Financial Acumen, Governance and Performance Management, Customer Focus and Working in Partnership at a Strategic Level are encouraged to apply. No specific academic qualifications are required for the posts.

The Department wishes to appeal to individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. We would particularly welcome applications from people with a disability and those from ethnic minorities as they are currently under-represented on the Board.

The Department will operate a Guaranteed Interview Scheme for applicants with a disability.

This is an open competition which involves an application form and interview. Appointment will be based on merit against the essential criteria. Closing date for receipt of applications is 5.00pm on Friday 31 March 2017.

One appointment will commence on 1 July 2017 and one on 1 February 2018, and the term of the appointment for both will be for three years.

Board Members are expected to attend Board meetings a minimum of one day per month and to serve on one or more sub-committees of the Board. In addition, the successful candidates will be expected to attend other events including occasional evening engagements which may entail an overnight stay.

Remuneration is £5,150 per annum plus travel and subsistence expenses. Reasonable receipted dependant carer expenses will also be reimbursed where applicable.
