DoJ looks to recruit board members for NI police officers fund

Fund provides financial assistance to officers and their families injured by terrorism
Published - 16/01/2020 By - Gary Mason

The Department of Justice has launched a recruitment competition to appoint a Chairperson and four Board members to the Northern Ireland Police Fund (NIPF).

The NIPF provides care and financial assistance to serving and former police officers, and their families, who have been injured or disabled as a direct result of terrorism. The appointments will begin in April 2020 for a term of four years for the Chairperson and two Board Members, and a term of three years for the other two Board Members.

The Department of Justice says applications are particularly welcome from women, people under the age of 40, ethnic minorities and people with a disability, who are currently under-represented on the NIPF Board.

The time commitment required for the position of Chairperson is four to five days per month, including preparation and attendance at a monthly Board meeting.  The part time salary is £6,000 per annum.

The time commitment required for Board members is one day per month, including attendance at a minimum of six Board meetings and five committee meetings per year.  Board Members are not paid.

The closing date for applications is February 6.

Due to the transition to a system of staggered appointments, the appointment of the Chairperson and two Board members will be for a four year term, and the other two Board members will be appointed for a three year term.
