Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment
351. To ask the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment the number of personnel in his Department at Principal Officer level or above who, on retiring from that position, were subsequently appointed to a State or semi-State board over the past ten years. [34920/23]
My Department does not collect or hold the information requested by the Deputy. The process of identifying suitable candidates for appointment to State Boards is administered by the Public Appointments Service, State Boards Unit. The website www.stateboards.ie is the channel used by the Public Appointments Service to both inform the public of vacancies on State Boards and to collate expressions of interest in those roles for the Minister. It also provides information and resources of relevance for State Board appointments, including eligibility requirements and annual activity details on individual Boards.
