The Public Appointments Service (PAS) is the centralised provider of recruitment and assessment services for the Civil Service, including management of the process to identify people for consideration for appointment to State Boards.

The website www.stateboards.ie is the channel used by the PAS to both inform the public of vacancies on State Boards and to collate expressions of interest in those roles. Applications are welcome from people who believe they have the relevant skills and experience to join a State Board.

Applications are processed by way of a transparent assessment system designed and implemented by PAS to support the Minister in making the appointments. A rigorous process of selection is applied to all applicants for State boards in order for final selection to ensure a full complement of experience, qualifications and expertise.
