South Connacht Citizens Information Service – Directors or Chairperson
Expressions of interest are invited for the appointment of Directors or a Chairperson to the board of South Connacht Citizens Information Service.
The board of South Connacht Citizens Information Service, which is operational and currently has 3 board members, now seeks to recruit additional Directors or a Chairperson. The South Connacht Region covers counties Galway, Mayo & Roscommon.
The Citizens Information Service
Citizens Information Services (CIS) are companies, which allow callers to access face-to-face information on public and social services on a drop-in basis. There are Citizens Information Centres right across Ireland, and these are supported by outreach locations and a mobile service. For more information, please see: http://www.citizensinformation.ie
The new Regional Board will replace the 3 existing local CIS Boards. This restructuring process is at Board level only. It does not involve any reduction or closure of any services – all current services will remain open for business; there will be no physical moves for any services or staff. Current employees of the 3 existing local service Boards will transfer to the new regional companies.
This is a voluntary Board of Management. No fees will be paid to Board members; however, travel and subsistence expenses will be paid when applicable.
Completed application form and one page cover letter should be emailed to Chair.SouthConnachtCIS@citinfo.ie
Closing date for receipt of applications: Friday 26th October 2018
Region: South Connacht (Galway, Mayo, Roscommon)
