The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport would like to invite expressions of interest from members of the public to serve on the boards of State Bodies and Agencies operating under the Department's aegis. To express an interest please email MichelleCooke@dttas.ie with your CV and a covering letter detailing which board you are interested in serving on.
For details of the membership of the state boards and agencies, as well as current vacancies and when board members terms expire, please click the link above.
The Department already has a database of persons who have previously expressed an interest in serving on State Boards under the aegis of this Department. Further expressions of interest received will supplement this database and all will be considered by the Minister as vacancies arise.
In making any board appointments, the Minister will not necessarily be confined to those who make such expressions of interest but will ensure that all of those appointed have the relevant qualifications for the positions. In that respect, the Minister will have regard to the body or agency in question and its particular area of responsibility etc. as well as ensuring that the board members have an appropriate mix of skills and experience in such areas as corporate governance, legal expertise, financial expertise (with particular reference to audit capability and/or project assessment). The Minister may, from time to time, also decide not to fill all existing vacancies.
Persons being proposed for appointment as chairpersons of State bodies/Agencies will be required to appear before the appropriate Oireachtas committee prior to them being formally appointed by the Minister or the Government as chairperson.
In the case of a number of the bodies and agencies, the board appointments, while made by the Minister, are not made at the Minister's sole discretion and, instead, individuals are nominated for appointment by the Minister by various organisations specified in the relevant statute.
Updates in respect of appointments to State Boards under the aegis of this Department will be published here as they are confirmed.
