    Hello all,

    Will they be having the interviews country wide or do you think that they will be held in Dublin.

    Does anyone know what the shift pattern will be for this job? Also, would one be required to wear a uniform?

    What exactly do you mean by shift pattern?

    In the booklet it says outside Dublin you are on a 16/7 shift pattern, in Dublin it maybe 24/7. In short if your based in Dublin you may be asked to start any hour of the day and finish 8 to 12 hours later but that is dependant on operational requirements.

    Dublin Airport is not going to be the same as Dublin Port etc.

    also it says in the booklet wearing a uniform will be a requirement of the job.

    I don't drive, will that be held against me?

    There is no requirement in the booklet that you must hold a driving licence or that you need to have your own transport so they cant hold it against you as long as you are able to attend your assigned location <this would be something to consider after you get through interview and are offered a job>.

    First time I ever applied for civil service job, anybody know the average turnaround time between applying, online testing, interviews and job offers?
    In Faq it says expected time line should be in the booklet, but the booklet only outlines the process.

    Could be anything from a couple of months to a couple of years, depends on your merit order placement, interview and how many trainees they can take at any one time

    If its the same as regular CO comps then.next stage is online assessment in a few weeks, then another two weeks or so for results and order of merit. Then top group get called for aptitude tests and interviews, but yep, could be up to a two year process

    The above advice is correct but will say that like other competitions the panel is formed for a two year period and so if you're not in the first group called you may be called later on so its best to roll with the process.

  • Registered Users Posts: 42 Sophia Petrillo

    I think it’s a 2 year contract. The posts were referred to in a radio interview the other day talking about Brexit and if there was a deal done would these posts still be required, the answer was yes but if there was a deal they would need less people but still a significant number. He definitely said it was a two year contract but not sure if the post did when advertised. :)

    The booklet is now not available but if you check your message board on public jobs there is details about the assessment

    It said in the booklet it was a 3 year contract with a possibility of another 2 years after that , if not then you would be put in another section after the 3 years so you still have a job , though you would lose the shift allowance but your basic pay will rise every year so not so bad

    I didn't see any option to save your progress or draft version, so think you need to complete it in one go

    Although its not advisable, I do believe you can & that your responses to questions are automatically saved as you progress through each page.

    The AQ takes about 1 hour to complete.

    Was the online assessment difficult?


  • Registered Users Posts: 29 DarceyEllie


    Just completed stage 1. best of luck to all. It wasn't difficult just tricky I suppose and you don't really know the right or wrong answer in some scenarios presented.


  • Registered Users Posts: 973 ✭✭✭November Golf


    The (Stage 1 - Assessment Questionnaire) test will close at 1pm (Today) Tuesday the 18th September 2018.

    As per the booklet, you must have fully completed and submitted the questionaire by 1pm to be considered for next stage.
