Vacancy Description

A position of member will become vacant with the Boundary Commission for Northern Ireland in June 2019.

Members of the Commission need to work together to balance statistical, demographic, and sociological factors within the framework set out by statute.

The member role is a challenging but rewarding opportunity. It calls for someone with good judgement, resilience and sensitivity.
