RTÉ is Seeking a New Board Member
The Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment has announced that it is seeking to appoint a new board member to RTÉ.
The board currently has eleven members with one vacancy. The Department’s notice states that applicants for the position must have ‘experience in implementing a digital transformation programme, or experience in implementing new digital models in an organisation of similar size and complexity as RTÉ.’
RTÉ recently published a new strategy which seeks to reduce costs by €60m over three years, including a headcount reduction of 200 next year and the closure of the RTÉ Lyric FM studios in Limerick. A campaign has been launched to reverse the decision on Lyric.
The deadline for applications for the board position is 3pm on 7 January. For full details, visit www.stateboards.ie.
