Education Authority is seeking three new positions
THREE new, top-level posts created at the Education Authority (EA) with a starting salary of £70,000, are among this week’s public sector roles.
The assistant directors positions at the EA are part of the structuring process at the school body, which was formed back in 2015 after all five education boards here joined forces.
And now the body is seeking three top tier professionals to develop the leadership structures in its children and young people’s services directorate. According to the advertisements, directors will “play a role in leading the organisation through its on-going transformation and in re-developing service delivery models, structures and systems to improve outcomes across special education statutory services, special education provision, pupil support services and pupil welfare, child protection and inclusion”.
The jobs are announced just weeks after the closing deadline for applications for a new chief executive at the body, though an appointment has yet to be announced. At Ulster University various positions have become available. Among the roles is a reader in clinical nursing, which will see the post holder based between the university’s Jordanstown campus and the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust’s (HSC) Ulster Hospital, Dundonald.
The successful candidate will be required to lead the strategic development of research, practice, and education in clinical nursing at the HSC and the university. The salary is between £50,647 and £58,688.
Five other roles at Ulster University are also available, including a lecturer in mechanical engineering and design post. The salary is between £24,540 and £49,177.
And Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is seeking to appoint 13 people for various full time, permanent, part time and temporary posts. Other roles in the public sector this week include three positions in the civil service and a teacher of chemistry.
