Public Prosecution Service seeks new assistant director
THE Public Prosecution Service for Northern Ireland is advertising for an assistant director of Public Prosecutions.
The PPS, whose current director is Stephen Herron, says that it can offer “an interesting and dynamic career”.
The post-holder will be responsible for the day to day management of a region and for prosecutorial functions. An essential part of the role will involve engaging with stakeholders.
The successful candidate can expect “significant changes within the criminal justice system in Northern Ireland in the months and years ahead”.
Applicants are also advised that the Public Prosecution Service will be at the forefront of many key reform initiatives.
Meanwhile, the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority wishes to appoint an inspector.
The post may suit someone who is interested in driving quality and improvement in health and social care across Northern Ireland.
The authority is the independent regulator of health and social care in Northern Ireland.
The body supports quality, improvement, health and social care through a programme of inspections, reviews and audits.
This opportunity is most likely to suit nurses, social workers and allied health professionals.
The Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service has three posts available — a driver trainer to deliver training and conduct assessments in a range of vehicles; an engineering manager to manage the legal, safe and most cost effective operation of the Fire Service’s fleet of vehicles and equipment; and a business support analyst to develop and implement policy, procedures and key business processes for the facilities and assets department.
A substance misuse practitioner is required at Carlisle House in Belfast which is run by the Presbyterian Church in Ireland.
The successful applicant will join the team involved in treatment for substance misuse at the centre which operates six-week treatment programmes.
The centre aims to “create a safe and therapeutic space for individuals who have substance use difficulties”.
