The Department for Communities invites applications for the appointment of up to 10 Members to the NILGOSC Board. The positions consist of four employee organisation representatives (eg Trade Unions), five Scheme employer representatives and one independent member.


NILGOSC’s key role is to ensure the effective and efficient governance, and administration of a pension scheme for local councils and other similar bodies in Northern Ireland. This competition provides individuals with an excellent opportunity to make a significant contribution to its leadership and oversight.

Applications are welcome from a wide range of people who have an interest in public service, including those who are looking for an opportunity to use their skills and experience. We would particularly welcome applications from women, people with a disability, young people and people from minority ethnic groups for these positions. A Guaranteed Interview Scheme is in place for those applicants with a disability. You do not need to have previous experience of serving on a board to apply.

Further information on the competition including the criteria for the positions can be found in the Candidate Information Booklet.
