    One wonders what is the point in creating panels which won't be utilised.

    I suppose they cant predict fully where vacancies will arise and then there are other Open / InterD / Transfers / Internal that they have to pull from. But with this being a specialist role, I had fully expected it to be nearly exhausted.

    I would say Dublin is exhausted and they have to go again.

    Or other threads are suggesting high retirements in September and this will be expired by then.

    Finish high on the panel and you would be offered positions.

    I got through to interviews, suprised as i didnt prep too much for the video interview.


  • Registered Users Posts: 361 ✭✭ Emma2019


    Through to interview too. Pleasantly surprised as I'd thought the video interview hadn't gone too well!

    Any idea how many called for interview vs how many positions they're trying to fill?


  • Registered Users Posts: 49 ✭✭✭ littlelady81


    No luck here unfortunately...I've asked for feedback so will see what that throws up. Disappointed....


  • Registered Users Posts: 20 mary poppins


    No luck for me either. Feedback not great either


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 ✭✭✭ Anon31985


    I'm going to interview too. Well done to everyone making the next stage.
    Sorry to the people that didn't make it. I have been there so many times too.

    10 days of interviews. 6 or 7 candidates a day? There may be more than one Board.

    I think the last panel had 57 for the Audit side and 35ish for the Policy and from the talk on this thread there are still people who haven't been placed. However, I think Brexit is more of a certainty than it was, so it may be that there are expected to be more Revenue posts coming out of this. Also, there appears to be an expectation of more vacancies arising in September due to retirements. It's all speculation!!

    I wonder will we have to fill in a competency based form at some stage. Imagine having to go into that interview blind!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 361 ✭✭ Emma2019


    From looking at other competency forms the questions are very similar to what was asked in the video interview so it might be that's what they use?

    Hopefully they give you some decent pointers. Sorry to hear that but best of luck in the next one!

    I'll speculate at more than one board as some people have probably applied and will get placed on both panels? And then there will be the applicants who don't make it past the interview 60 or 70 to be interviewed might not leave enough by the end of the interviews. Of course I have no idea really. I'm just happy to be on to the next stage.

    The last competition had 2 boards sitting, so probably 100 - 125 going forward to interview, with maybe half being panelled.

    So cheer up everyone, you’re in with a 50:50 shout at this stage!

    I believe less than 50% got through and 200 were video interviewed.

    So 10 days of interviews, 8/9 per day would suggest one panel? Maybe not.

    Tight going...

    Glad to say I got through to next stage also.

    Unlikely they’ll actually sit for the full 10 days. They usually have 2 interview boards.

    But regardless, the good news is still that it’s about a 50:50 for those still standing...

    They informed me this morning that we will get a link to an application form early next week, along with the interview date. Moving quickly thank goodness!

    It actually is for some people. A prospect for progression and furthering their career.

    No idea what your beef is that has you trolling all over this thread but at least you're mildly entertaining.

    Ah. I said it was exciting? Not quite reviting, but certainly exciting. Maybe akin to John Wick 2
