The Department for Communities invites applications for the appointment of a Chair to Historic Buildings Council.

This is an opportunity for an individual to make a significant contribution to Northern Ireland’s historic environment.

Applications are welcome from a wide range of people who have an interest in public service, including those with experiences such as community involvement or charitable and voluntary work. We would particularly welcome applications from women, people with a disability, young people and people from minority ethnic groups for these positions. A Guaranteed Interview Scheme is in place for those applicants with a disability.

Further information on the competition including the criteria for the positions can be found in the Candidate Information Booklet.

The closing date is 12 noon on Friday 29 March 2019 . Late applications will not be considered.
