IFB hires Deloitte

In a repeat of the process that selected Simon Perry as new CEO in 2005, the Irish Film Board is going through Deloitte Executive Selection to find a replacement who will take up the reins on January 1st, 2011.

This is good news because there was a possibility that the public service recruitment ban might have been applied. This has resulted, for instance, in the loss of frontline nursing services for the elderly in this part of the world.

If you are interested in the CEO position at the IFB you should forward a CV in confidence to Mark O’Donnell, Director, Executive Selection, Deloitte, Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2, Ireland. (Tel: +353 1 417 2580 Email: maodonnell@deloitte.ie). The closing date for applications is Friday, 8th October.

The person being sought will have strong people management, negotiation and financial management skills; will require proven experience and qualifications to ensure the ongoing progress and development of a distinct and creatively led Irish Film Making sector; [and] will also be expected to oversee the implementation of policies to develop the broader Film and Television production industry.

Salary is not mentioned but I believe it is currently in the region of €110,000pa (contingent on increments, payment of a 2.5% public service pay increase, and recent salary reductions in the public service).

There is also a 20% performance 'package', plus an Accommodation Allowance. The latter allowance is not that common in the public service and may only apply because the agency is split between its HQ in Galway and its Dublin offices where many of the 16 staff are based full-time.
