New director general of WRC appointed

Audrey Cahill has been appointed as the new director general of the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC).

Cahill, who was appointed after an open competition managed by the Public Appointments Service, had previously been a member of the WRC’s board from 2015 to 2021.

She has more than 20 years’ experience across all aspects of human resources, and joins the WRC from healthcare group UPMC, where she held the position of Director of Human Resources.


Simon Coveney (Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment) said: “Audrey’s experience in this area will be hugely beneficial, and her stewardship will ensure that the WRC continues to deliver top quality mediation, adjudication and workplace relations services.”

The WRC’s functions include industrial-relations advisory and conciliation services, and the resolution of industrial-relations disputes across the public and private sectors.
