    Does anyone know if there will be vacancies for infrastructure outside Dublin?

    I would have assumed that infrastructure would be more widespread than development but I am guessing. SP is in Sligo and it's a big department with a big budget and the west of the country tends to be busy for that department. No idea about Kildare.

    Anyone progressing in the HEOs streams?

    Hi folks,

    How do you find out where the list is currently at?

    Has anyone been placed yet on the panel? I'm number 21 on the dev panel and I sent in references & qualifications 3 weeks ago. I've received back my qualifications but my references haven't been contacted yet. Just wondering has anyone started working yet? Or been given a start date? Have they moved up the list on the panel?

    Got vetting request earlier in the week, no other signs of moving.


  • Registered Users Posts: 82 ✭✭emermc


    Runawaybishop, you're on the HEO Development panel I think. Did they contact your references yet?

    I'm on the EO panel.

    I'm on the HEO Infrastructure stream and placed 12th on the panel after interview. I got a call yesterday about a position in SP in Dublin which I'm very unlikely to accept as I'm based in the West so hoping for Sligo.

    Checked the competition booklet again this morning to clarify what happens when I turn this down and it says "Candidates who refuse an offer of appointment to a specific panel and location will retain their placing on that panel but forfeit their right to be offered an appointment to that location under that panel." so I assume this means I'll still be eligible for an appointment in SP in Sligo should one become available??

    During my interview it was mentioned that the "infrastructure roles are more likely to be Dublin based" but who knows - I hope not!!!

    I've been told today I'm being placed in DSP in Kilmainham. Does anyone know anything about working there? Dev stream.

    Nope, sorry. Did you get an actual start date?

    I filled in my garda vetting form etc for Laois for HEO dev just yesterday. So some movement now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 82 ✭✭emermc


    Sept 3rd was mentioned but it has to be discussed further.

    Good to see progress being made.

    There hardly would be a second round of interviews for either stream, would there?

    Wouldn't be surprised due to the slow pace

    Just found one of my references was contacted last week so might be a sign of things about to start.

    What order of merit (roughly) were you placed (for both streams)?
    Might be hope for us after all!

    Unless it stated in the booklet that there would be second round interviews then there wont be.

    In the event that the number of vacancies necessitates a second round of interviews, we will proceed to those next placed on the order of merit following shortlisting. This will give rise to a second panel from which vacancies will be filled.

    Contracts issued now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 82 ✭✭emermc


    I started last week in DSP. Someone there told me this panel has now been exhausted. Is that true? Did everyone who was on it get called?


  • Registered Users Posts: 15 Fionnger


    I started in the DAFM in ICT infrastructure a month ago.

    Apologies if I'm resurrecting a zombie thread here but I'm curious how anyone who took a position from this competition is getting on?
