Why bother repeating this as it was already mentioned above . Talk about just wanting to have something to say .

Good luck with your applications everyone

I've just submitted my application.

I read the Information Booklet - your only allowed to chose one location from List A and B.
Unfortuntely none of the locations on List B are anywhere near me... so I'm left with chosing one location from List A - which won't be easy as I live on the border of Cavan, Monaghan, Meath and Louth..

This may be a cheeky question, but does anyone know where I'd be better off selecting as my location in Stage B??

Just after being made redundant and getting married in September so I'm really really hoping I get something from this - I just wanna try and get the best possible chance by choosing a county where theres actual vacancies... Anyone know??? Or Know how I'd find out??

Whichever town listed has the most civil servants will likely be the one with most vacancies.

So the question is how do you find out which town employs the most civil servants?

Best way I can think of is looking at the governments info on decentralisation:

http://www.decentralisation.gov.ie/DecProjectstobeleftinsituoradvanced.html
http://www.decentralisation.gov.ie/Documents/BD_OriginalGovtAnnouncementBudget2004.html

Decentralisation plans proceeding (numbers from 2nd link – 2004 Govt announcement):

Buncrana: 120 jobs in Dept. of Social Protection.
Gweedore: 30 jobs in Foras Na Gaeilge.
Listowel: 50 jobs with the Revenue.

No information on the others.

Of course, there are also other civil service jobs in those locations unrelated to decentralisation but there doesn’t appear to be any way to determine numbers for those.

Bottom line: Pick Buncrana!

Why do they ask for you pps number. Is it for them to find out if some one has been on the dole or what not for a long time

I don't believe so.

Like any employer, the government has to tax its staff.

Many bit employers collect PPS at job-application time, 'cos then they are 100% certain they've got it later when they need it. This also filters out people who don't have one.

The PPS Number is currently captured at registration stage on publicjobs.ie. This assists in the identification and verification of applicants at various stages of the selection process and is used to identify duplicate applicants.

I applied for this a few days ago but I didn't get any kind of acknowledgement through my email. On publicjobs.ie, it says that my application has been submitted so I'm hoping I didn't miss out on anything...

Just wondering if anyone on here was a TCO in Cork last year and if so where were you placed? I'm curious to see what departments hire

I don't think anyone has received the questionnaire as of yet. The info said that it would be sent out after the deadline . No panic yet . As long as we get it before Friday.

The deadline has been extended for this until 12 midnight for some reason.
