Wanted - thick skinned senior manager to run important organisation that can never please everyone

In the land of the over-governed, the Chief Electoral Officer is king?

Well, they’re looking for a new one! Douglas Bain retires this year and the hunt for his replacement has started.

If you fancy your chances organising and robustly defending Electoral Office NI’s activities, voter registration, management of polling stations and counts, and you have the mandatory experience, the NIO would like to hear from you before the closing date of 9 April!

  • a minimum of 3 years senior management experience working at board level in the public, private or voluntary sector, working in a complex and changing environment;
  • a minimum of 3 years experience of meeting challenging financial and other performance objectives and targets, gained at senior management level;
  • a minimum of 3 years senior management experience of leading a team and working with a diverse range of internal and external stakeholders to deliver agreed outcomes, involving partnership working.

And with on average an election every year, and the NIO handing over much of its interest in elections to EONI once Policing and Justice finally devolved, your life will never be dull.
