Extern: Board Directors

NOTE: This item has expired and will soon be unavailable for viewing.


Extern is the leading social justice charity across Ireland. We are currently seeking to appoint new Directors with the skills to positively contribute to our dynamic vision of ‘global leader in changing lives.’ Extern’s governance is top in class, with recent awards in NI and ROI and an active programme of continuous learning and development.

Extern has grown rapidly within the past 5 years to position itself at the forefront of service innovation for young people, families, people who are homeless, or have addictions, or an offending past and communities who face social isolation such as refugees or travellers.  We have grown from serving 4,000 to 20,000 service users across 23 counties in Ireland.  If you have a background in strategic corporate partnerships, international development, strategic growth or experience of growing an organisation from local to global or cutting edge IT development then this is an opportunity to join a forward-looking Board focussed to support its Executive Team to deliver high quality, life-changing services across the world.

Extern Board Directors are not remunerated, but reasonable travel and subsistence allowances are paid in accordance with Extern Group Board policy. Openness and transparency are key requirements so all potential conflicts of interest must be declared on application. Please express your interest by sending your résumé via email to linda.mcnaul@extern.org. You can also contact the Chair of Extern Group, Derek McCabe, for an informal discussion on (+353) (0)87 210 2802. The closing date for expressions of interest is 11 July 2019.
