The department of the environment is seeking applications from people who are interested in serving on the boards of many of the public bodies which it sponsors.

The advertisement will first appear this Sunday and will be repeated in the daily press on Wednesday and Thursday of next week.

The department is looking for applicants to fill posts across the full spectrum of its activities covering housing, waterways, countryside conservation, environmental protection, health and safety, rural regeneration, management of nature reserves, review of local authority boundaries and implementation of the national forest strategy.

This is the second year the department has undertaken a general advertising exercise to recruit, by open competition, to the boards of its sponsored bodies.

Individuals who consider they have the relevant skills and experience can have the opportunity to apply to be considered for vacancies which will arise between mid 1997 and mid 1998.

There will be appointment opportunities in both national and local bodies. All posts are part - time.

In some bodies chairmen and deputy chairmen may be needed as well as ordinary members.

The advertising of these public posts follows the recommendations from the Nolan Committee ( The Committee on Standards in Public Life) and guidance issued by the commissioner for public appointments, Len Peach.

A firm of recruitment specialists has been retained by the department to advise on the selection process.

The advertisements invite interested individuals to send their CVs to the departments advisers, stating the bodies in which they are interested and why they should be considered suitable for appointment.
