Appointments to Board of CRC

The First Minister and the deputy First Minister intend to appoint a new Chair and 8 Board Members to the Community Relations Council.
The Chair and Board Members will be committed to ensuring that the Community Relations Council effectively fulfils its role as a key delivery agent of the Executive’s Good Relations Strategy – Together: Building a United Community (T:BUC).
As a member of the CRC Board you will have responsibility along with the other Board members for ensuring that the organisation delivers its aims, objectives and priorities set by the First Minister and deputy First Minister.  The Board Chair has particular leadership responsibilities, formulating the Board’s strategy and ensuring that the CRC’s policies and actions support the wider strategic policies of Ministers and that the CRC’s affairs are conducted with probity. 
Women, people with a disability, ethnic minorities and young people are currently under-represented on public bodies.  We would particularly welcome applications from members of these groups.
Individuals from public and private sectors, including charities and social enterprise sector or community/voluntary organisations are welcome.
The term of appointment will initially be for a three year term following which subject to a satisfactory performance assessment, a further period of appointment may be offered.
The remuneration for Board Member positions will be £125 per day, up to a maximum of £3,000 per annum, plus travel and subsistence costs.  This is calculated on the basis that general board membership will require an average commitment of 1-2 days per month to attend meetings and other events. 
The remuneration for the Chair will be £8,200 per annum, plus travel and subsistence costs, based on an average of 3-4 days per month.
