    Yup, just going for the experience as doubt I'd get anywhere.

    I'll have a go at this. Probably won't get it as I don't have much management experience and I'm not sure what they mean in the Policy section.

    It will be good experience for the future, especially if I get to do the Interview & Presentation Stage.

    Hi, does anyone know if time in the public service counts towards your two year service requirement? Tia


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,178 Crunchymomma


    I'm in but pretty sure I won't make it past shortlisting..... Worth a shot though I suppose

    Unfortunately from what i've been told, Public Service doesn't count.

    Just had a look and it seems that the "Policy" section is optional. On the application form it says "your experience of Policy Development or Implementation (if any)"

    Thanks JamPack, but I’m really hoping you’re wrong... I emailed PAS just now, so I should get a response at some stage tmor.

    It’s probably wishful thinking though...

    Apparently not. A girl at work here emailed to ask and was told it doesn't count

    Ah sugar... thanks Gerry. I’ll just have to wait for 2021 so...

    Thanks for all the replies guys... I was hoping this wouldn’t open until September ish... ah well... it’s not my time.
    Best of luck to you all xx

    I will try, but the whole process is so off putting.
    I wish they'd advertise location and number of vacancies, even just estimated.
    So much effort has to go in to a genuine application.

    Anyone else gonna throw their hat in the ring?

    Hi Sinus,
    Where did you get that link? I can’t find it on my pc on public jobs anywhere’s? Tia

    As it's interdepartmental, I think the link is just sent internally from the Civil Service Bodies to their staff, so I don't think it would be on the home page. I could be wrong though.

    Oh ok thanks, we will probably get it today then.


  • Registered Users Posts: 731 ✭✭✭ Littlefinger


    I'll be going for this but fully expect to be eliminated at shortlisting


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,189 ✭✭✭ Aisling(",)


    I'm going to give it a shot! I'm not an EO long but I'd love if I got to interview stage even just for the experience.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,678 ✭✭✭ Aglomerado

    The experience will stand to you. I applied for AP as an EO and got to interview. I failed , but I gained valuable experience, applied for HEO and aced it thanks to the AP experience. Good luck! :)

    Can AOs apply for this?

    Don't think so unfortunately.

    "6. Grades equivalent to the Higher Executive Officer grade (i.e. have the same maximum pay
    scale or higher) are not eligible to compete in this promotion competition."

    And I think the AO scale finishes on the same point as the HEO scale.

    thats interesting that public service doesnt count.

    thats new.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,810 ✭✭✭ Addle


    It's not new.
    Same way civil service service doesn't count for public service roles.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 229 ✭✭ LouD2016


    Has anyone else received an email advertising this? My department hasn't sent around anything and I cant find it on public jobs - only accessing it through the OP's link


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,810 ✭✭✭ Addle


    Got an email to work and my personal address from HR communications-peoplepoint.

    my mistake

    i must not have been promoted in a competition where my public service counted

    i probably just imagined it


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,810 ✭✭✭ Addle


    An open competition perhaps.
    HEO is interdepartmental only.

    Its never counted- and there was union uproar when it was suggested to make similar grades analogous for precisely that purpose.


  • Registered Users Posts: 502 ✭✭✭ Sinus pain


    I got it through internal email


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 229 ✭✭ LouD2016


    Just got the email now!
