Department of Education Public Appointments Competition for MCA

Department of Education Public Appointments Competition - Middletown Centre for Autism

The Department of Education (DE) has launched a public appointments competition to appoint a vice chairperson and at least two directors to fill vacant positions on the Board of the Middletown Centre for Autism (MCA).

MCA is a joint north south initiative with funding provided by DE and the Department of Education and Skills (DES) to support the promotion of excellence in the development and harmonisation of education and allied services to children and young people with autistic spectrum disorders.

Applications are welcomed from all backgrounds regardless of religious belief, gender, disability, ethnic origin, political opinion, age, marital status, sexual orientation, or whether or not you have dependents. Applications are particularly welcome from women, people under 30 years of age, members of ethnic minorities and people with disabilities as these groups continue to be under-represented on the boards of public bodies.

Details of the roles and the full selection criteria are set out in the application pack which is available by contacting the Department. The closing date for applications is 4pm on Thursday 9 May 2019.
