The Minister for Education and Skills, Mr Richard Bruton, T.D. today (Tuesday 21st February 2017) announced that applications are invited from suitably qualified and experienced persons to fill vacancies on the Board of Caranua, the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund Board.
The vacancies to be filled are the eight ordinary members of the Caranua Board. At least four of the members of the Board must be persons, who before they attained the age of 18, resided in an institution specified in the Residential Institutions Redress Act 2002.
Caranua is an independent statutory Board established under the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund Act 2012, to help meet the needs of persons who suffered residential institutional child abuse.
The process of filling the vacancies on the Caranua Board is being managed by the Public Appointments Service (PAS) under the revised procedures put in place in late 2014 for the appointment of persons to positions on State boards. Applications may only be made through the dedicated website www.stateboards.ie. PAS will undertake an assessment process in relation to the expressions of interest received and at the end of that process it will provide the Minister with a list of candidates deemed to be suitable for appointment to the Board.
The closing date for the receipt of applications via http://www.stateboards.ie/stateboards/campaignAdvert/49513.htm is 14th March 2017.
