The Citizens Information Board invites expressions of interest for appointment as Director or Chairperson to a Money Advice and Budgeting Service Regional Board

February 2018

Expressions of interest are being sought for the positions of Chairpersons and Directors on the following Money Advice and Budgeting Service Regional Boards:

South Dublin Region – Dublin City Council area south of the Liffey, with Dun Laoghaire/Rathdown and South Dublin County Council areas

North Leinster Region – Louth, Meath, Kildare, Westmeath, Longford

South Munster Region – Cork, Kerry

The Money Advice and Budgeting Service (MABS)
MABS is made up of 53 Money Advice and Budgeting Services operating from over 60 offices nationwide. The MABS offices operate an appointment scheduling system and each service is staffed by experienced Money Advisers who work with clients experiencing difficulties with a wide range of personal debts including personal loans, mortgages, credit card debt, catalogue debts, debts to legal moneylenders and hire purchases.

The new Regional Boards will replace the 51 existing local MABS 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 51 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.
