Extern are seeking new Board Members across the Extern Group

Extern Group, Extern Northern Ireland, Extern Ireland and Extern Supporting Communities seek to appoint new Directors to their respective Boards. Extern is the trusted, forward-looking charity that changes people’s lives, by meeting them at their point of need. Extern brings solutions and delivers quality services — reconnecting people with society, building better communities for us all.

The Extern Group Board provides strategic leadership to its three subsidiaries (Extern Northern Ireland, Extern Ireland and Extern Supporting Communities) and delegates operations to the Extern Group Chief Executive. Since the creation of the new Group structure in 2014, Extern has grown to position itself at the forefront of service innovation for young people, families, people who are homeless, have an offending past, have substance addictions, and communities who face social isolation such as refugees or travellers. 

If you have a background in finance, banking, housing, justice or business development (particularly fundraising), then this is an opportunity to join a forward-looking Board within an overall Group structure focussed on delivering high quality, life-changing services.

Extern Board Directors are not remunerated, but reasonable travel and subsistence allowances are paid in accordance with Extern Group Board policy.

Please express your interest by sending your resume via email to linda.mcnaul@extern.org, or in the first instance contact the Chair of Extern Group, Derek McCabe, for an informal discussion on (+353) (0)87 210 2802.
