*Closes Thursday 08th December*

The Department for the Economy wishes to appoint five members to the Board of Tourism Northern Ireland (TNI). The appointments will be made on a staggered basis for a term of three years. The initial set of appointments will be effective from 1 April 2023.

The TNI board has corporate responsibility for ensuring that TNI fulfils the aims and objectives set by the Department and approved by the Minister, and for promoting the efficient, economic and effective use of staff and other resources by TNI.

No specific academic qualifications are required for the post. However, the Department wishes to appeal to people of all ages from a wide range of backgrounds and experience across the community, voluntary, business or public sector, who can bring a wide range of skills and experience to the role. DfE would particularly welcome applications from people with a disability, those from minority ethnic communities and young people, as they are currently under-represented on the board. The Department is operating a Guaranteed Interview Scheme in this competition for applicants with a disability.

This is an open competition, which involves an application form and interview. The closing date for receipt of applications is noon (GMT) on 8 December 2022. Appointments are made on merit.

The initial appointments will be effective from 1 April 2023 for a term of three years.
