The Citizens Information Service
Citizens Information Services (CIS) are companies which allow callers to access face-to-face information on public and social services on a drop-in basis. There are Citizens Information Centres right across Ireland, and these are supported by outreach locations and a mobile service. For more information please see: www.citizensinformation.ie.

The new Regional Boards will replace the 42 existing local CIS Boards. This restructuring process is at Board level only. It does not involve any reduction or closure of any services – all current services will remain open for business; there will be no physical moves for any services or staff. Current employees of the 42 existing local service Boards will transfer to the new regional companies.

These are voluntary Boards of Management. No fees will be paid to Board members, however, travel and subsistence expenses will be paid when applicable.

Closing date for receipt of applications: Wednesday 28th February 2018 at 4pm.
