The establishment of the Media Commission is a priority for my Department, with €5.5 million in funding allocated in Budget 2022 for its establishment on an administrative basis.

Preparatory work for the Media Commission recruitment process has now commenced in conjunction with the Public Appointments Service and positions, as they arise, will be advertised in due course.

Recruitment for the Media Commission will be run on an open, competitive basis.
