Public appointment competition to appoint three new members to the Governing Body of South Eastern Regional College 

The Department for the Economy (DfE) has launched a public appointment competition to recruit three new members to the Governing Body of South Eastern Regional College.

Northern Ireland’s six further education colleges help people meet their full potential through the provision of a wide range of programmes and courses at all educational levels, and support innovation in the business community. In doing so, they fulfil their dual mandate of social and economic inclusion, helping to support a productive, thriving economy.

Governing Body members play a key role in supporting colleges to meet the requirements of both learners and employers. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the continuing development of a dynamic, vibrant further education sector in Northern Ireland.

The Department is looking for people of varying backgrounds across the community, voluntary, business or public sector, who can bring a wide range of skills and experience to the role. Women, people with a disability, those from minority ethnic groups, young people and people with a community, voluntary or rural background are currently under-represented on the Governing Body and applications from members of those groups would be particularly welcome. We are operating the Guaranteed Interview Scheme for applicants with a disability.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 12 noon on 22 February 2024.
