How to apply All positions in the NMI are advertised on the NMI website www.museum.ie. You must use the Application Form. Applications may be downloaded, details typed in and returned by email. Application forms are competency based and will contain guidelines on how to complete. Please also forward a cover letter and your Curriculum Vitae. Please note, the application form, CV and cover letter should be saved into one PDF document and then submitted. Completed applications must be returned to the designated address no later than the time and date specified in the advertisement for the post. Application received after the closing date will not be accepted. Candidates must ensure that applications are e-mailed in sufficient time to guarantee arrival not later than the latest time stipulated for acceptance. The acceptance of an application from a person desiring to be a candidate, or an invitation to attend for interview or any other selection method is not an admission by the organisation that the applicant possesses the prescribed qualifications.
