Appointment to the Emigrant Services Advisory Committee
The Embassy of Ireland, London is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified people for appointment to the Emigrant Services Advisory Committee.
The Emigrant Services Advisory Committee (ESAC), formerly known as the Díon Committee, was established in 1984 to advise the Government on issues of concern to the Irish community in Britain. Its work is coordinated by the Embassy of Ireland in London.
The Committee advises on the delivery of the Government’s Emigrant Support Programme in Britain, grants from which amounted to €6million for the 2022-23 programme. This includes assessing applications made to the programme.
Members will serve on a part-time basis and do not receive remuneration. Expenses associated with attendance at meetings will be covered. Prospective members should expect to serve an initial term of 3 years upon joining the Committee with the possibility of serving one more consecutive term only of 3 years.
Expressions of interest should be accompanied by a Curriculum Vitae. The Embassy will not be restricted to considering only those who have responded to this invitation but will ensure that all of those appointed have the relevant qualifications for the positions. Please submit expressions of interest to IrishCommunityCultural@dfa.ie by Thursday 6 April 2023.
