  • Register and create a profile at
  • Once registered, organisations and individuals are asked to complete a profile with key information such as skills, interests and experience (for individuals) and mission/objectives, area of service and board description (for organisations).
  • The organisation can then upload board member vacancies to the site, once their profile is complete.
  • The Boardmatch system works by automatically generating compatible matches based on the information provided in profiles.
  • By clicking the ‘Match’ button, individuals and organisations are given a list of compatible matches to make contact with through the site.
  • If the organisation and individual feel the fit is right, a match is made!

Whilst Boardmatch Ireland will assist users on the website, Boardmatch Ireland strongly advise that all individual candidates and organisations carry out their own due diligence when contacting and proceeding with the other party.

Boardmatch has the right to remove candidates’ information from the website if they are no longer active on the service.

If a candidate has not logged in to the Boardmatch platform in in 24 months or more, for data accuracy reasons, Boardmatch will delete the candidate’s details from the website. Boardmatch will keep a record of the date of all data changes and deletions from the database.

Boardmatch also has the right to remove organisations’ board vacancies from the website if we deem the information to be no longer accurate or the organisation ceases communication.
