Demystifying the Public Appointments Process
Public bodies make decisions that affect almost every aspect of our daily lives, from the arts, to education to health to transport to sport. A ‘public appointment’ is an appointment to the Board of Directors of a Public Body. Have you ever thought about applying for a public appointment but were put off by the process or because you thought it wasn’t for you? The Commissioner for Public Appointments is keen to encourage a wider and more diverse pool of people to put themselves forward for appointment to the Boards of our Public Bodies.
