    Yeah going for the EO myself just finishing the application form now, really not a fan of the competencies bit but needs must and all the rest.

    Man there was actually a lot in that EO application, got mine in about an hour before the deadline. Still haven't got like an acknowledgement email yet or anything. Wonder how different not going through PAS will be

    I assumed it was because it's being handled by department of agriculture

    I went for EO, only just joined the civil service and CO recently.

    Hi Folks,

    Just seen your thread for EO-ICT Specialist. Got interview dates for EO-ICT Specialist infrastructure. Its anticipated that interviews will take place 23/01/17 Kildare Street. I suppose any one who meets essential requirements on application form will go forward to next stage. I haven't worked in civil service before so don't have any experience with competency based interviews. Just wondering have any of you been through the competency route and how it compares to standard interviews.

    Thanks.

    I just got an email stating I am "deemed to be eligible to participate in this stream of the competition". Any idea how long it normally takes to progress from here? I have never applied for a State Role before so I have no idea how long things normally take.....

    I got email to say the same. Funny thing was I was on the other panel also and I got offered position but it was not for the location I wanted. Holding out for my location no 1 on panel. But on it 1 year now. If you want Dublin you would get it within a couple of months. Mate 7-8 months.

    Wonder if a position will come up department of agriculture newest competition before a position for the public job ones 1 year ago. As they are effectively the same role. Or is it a case of creating more panels


  • Registered Users Posts: 144 ✭✭ fergald


    The whole thing takes months, if not years.

    Got offered interview for middle of next week (ICT) Specialists (EO level) open comp. advertised Oct 2017.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15 ✭✭✭ Fionnger


    If going through PAS, psychometric tests were usually performed before interview stage. I guess its different because Dept. of Agriculture is running competition.

    Only usually do psychometric test if there is a lot of candidates going for it as way to cull the numbers down. It could just be a interview then placed on a pannel
    Best of luck anyway
