The Translink Group consists of a Public Corporation, the Northern Ireland Transport Holding Company (NITHC), which owns and controls seven private limited subsidiary companies (together referred to as the Group or Translink). They are Northern Ireland’s main public transport provider.

Minister Mallon said: “These are key positions as the organisation continues to progress its business-improvement strategy to ensure the ongoing efficiency of its operation and to continue to focus on the promotion of public transport services post pandemic.

“I would encourage anyone who considers that they meet the criteria for the posts and has a genuine desire to make a positive contribution to the work of NITHC to apply. I welcome applicants with varied experience and from a wide range of backgrounds. I believe diversity strengthens boards and adds to the good governance of public bodies.”
