Hi guys, just had a quick read over this thread, I have recently graduated as a social care worker and have been applying for positions, I currently have a job as a care staff and am very worried about getting a new job but have to move on as I spent 3 year's studying and don't want it to goto waste, I have an interview coming up but on the email it says permanent social care worker (panel basis) can anyone shed light on what panel basis is? I'm just very worried about leaving a safe job for something that may not be so SAFE!

Hope O.P has got sorted out with a job.

Regarding Social care workers. I would advise anyone offered a job from HSE not to hand in their notice until they have signed and returned a contract and got a starting date. I believe a few people were caught out about a year or so ago when the HSE ran out of money after offering people jobs

The way I understand it is that those in band a will be called for interview first and so be offered positions in the area and locations of choice befor these in band b .
I have to say that I was very concerned with how the whoe process has worked and have huge questions about how they reached the decisions. I got band a also, but do not think it has been at all fair way of judging someone's knowledge and there appears to be very little information around on what they have based their criteria on.? I really hope they do not use this system as it is so unfair. I hold out very little hope as to hearing anything soon re the issues I know have been raised about it

Hi all, I did my face to face interview last week, just received my results letter today but not sure how well I did or what to expect, if anything, now!!

Anyone any idea how many are on existing panels or how many new panel entrants after recent face to face interviews??

Don't know whether to be delighted or annoyed!

Firstly you did really well to get on panel well done! It depends on area... Areas in Dublin would have a higher number on panel so for example if you got position 20 on a Dublin area panel it would be simular to being number 5 on country panel. So it's hard to tell how long it will take unless you know how many posts are needed in the area you chose. I doubt there is many left in previous panel as I know in some areas that there are no one available on existing panel to take post. Maybe call manorhamilton tomorrow or email them. It may take a few months on some areas for jobs to be out out but busier areas will possibly be offering in next few weeks ...

I don't know how helpful that is and I know it's nerve wracking waiting and not knowing

I know this may sound a bit stupid but does anyone have an opinion or idea of when the panel could open up next I'm doing my masters in social work and will hopefully finish in April 2015. I'm praying the panel opens as I don't really want to move to the uk for work anyone shed some light on this?

They usually recruit every 2 years so there should be one the year you graduate. 😄

Gordan Jeyes is promoting the idea of a one year contract on lower pay for new social workers with no guarantee of a permanent job. I would have thought that the colleges would keep students informed of this. http://www.irishtimes.com/news/socia...ease-1.1672805

Well I've heard from inside sources that one it hasn't been approved and two more than likely it won't be approved

I think most people in the profession would be hoping that it does not go through but I would be worried that it will be established in some way. From what I've heard Child and Family senior staff would like to go back to local recruitment and they may be better able to do this now that it is a separate agency.
