Noel Waters, who has held the job in acting position since 2014, will now take it up on a permanent basis.

The Cabinet approved his promotion yesterday following a fresh recruitment campaign that ran over the summer.

Mr Waters was previously the director general of the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service. He has been a public servant for all of his career.

As the most senior civil servant in the Department of Justice, he will have a central role in the ongoing industrial relations negotiations with the GRA and AGSI.
