When the Ministry is invited to nominate people for a particular board, we search our database and match the requirements of the position with the skills and experience of people registered with us. We then forward the names of appropriate candidates to the department or organisation concerned.
We receive a request from an appointing agency and/or Minister, such as the Ministry of Health or the Ministry for Culture and Heritage.
The request sets out the skills and knowledge required and what the position will involve.
We search our database to identify Pacific people who fit the criteria specified by the appointing agency.
We contact the people we have identified to discuss the nomination and to confirm their interest.
We send a list of suitable nominees to the appointing agency, along with their CVs. The appointing agency assesses all nominations received from a range of sources and recommends to their Minister who should be appointed.
The appointing agency’s Minister makes the final decision on the appointment.
