Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine State Board Vacancies

Simon Coveney T.D., Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine invites expressions of interest from persons interested in being appointed to the boards of the State Bodies operating under the aegis of his Department, which are outlined below. Also there are two statutory Committees operating under the remit of Horse Racing Ireland to which the Minister nominates members.

Persons being proposed for appointment as chairpersons of State Bodies may be required to make themselves available to the appropriate Oireachtas committee to discuss the approach which they will take to their role as chairperson and their views about the future contribution of the State Body in question and, following that discussion, a decision will be taken by the Minister or the Government, as appropriate, to confirm the nominee as chairperson.

In the case of a number of the State Bodies, some of the board appointments are made by the Minister on the basis of nominations from various organisations as specified in the relevant statutes. These State Bodies are the Aquaculture Licensing Appeals Board, Bord Bia, Horse Racing Ireland, National Milk Agency, Teagasc and the Veterinary Council of Ireland.

Vacancies on the boards of the State Bodies, other than those which are filled on the basis of nominations from specified organisations, will be published on www.stateboards.ie. If you are interested in being alerted to vacancies on State Bodies as they arise, you should complete the registration process as outlined on www.stateboards.ie.
