  • I was going to ask the same thing? I would have thought that the first offers would be out today or tomorrow.




  • Ive been offered a Dublin post, was placed <5 on panel. Got some serious thinking to do now

    Congratulatations and take it as I suspect if you are interested in this job you are not spoilt for choice?




  • Hi guys

    I just found this thread through a Google search. Would have been handy months ago ☺️

    I placed <10 and got an offer today for Dublin. From what I’m reading here the regional panels are moving slowly? And this panels life could be up by early next year? So, it may be an idea to take the job! For serving CS - are most departments open to blended working post COVID?

    Thanks




  • Hi that great news. Congratulations on your promotion. I think they may move quickly through this panel! Here's hoping I placed <20 which I was delighted with having just got over a Covid dose.

    Our Dept, while open to blended working arrangements, is only considering 20%, so one day remotely. However not sure how that will go down but also we can't been seen to have an advantage on the private sector so I'd say a plan maybe be implemented slowly to see what the public opinion is like!

  • Well done to everyone so far! How do you get notified of an offer, is it the usual text/Email to check your publicjobs messages?

    Does anyone know if there has been any update on the PO ICT/Digital competition that was advertised around the same time as this competition?

    Thanks and congrats to you too ! It does seem to be moving quickly. Hope you’re feeling better now after the dose.

    Most larger private sector companies seem to be going blended or fully remote so that may not be an issue long term. I had hoped for 2 days remote but I guess 1 is better than nothing. My current place was looking at a 2:3 remote: office split. Im fully remote at the moment.

    Thanks again for the insight

    Thanks! Yes, message to check your message board. It seems to be moving really quickly

    Haven’t heard anything about the ICT competition.

    I know following on from a staff survey across the CS 2:3 days or 3:2 options were the most preferred. Like all Depts one size policy wont fit all business areas. So I imagine we will end up nearer your hopes! I think we all have a long way to go before we are fully blended!:)




  • Done!
    They’re no fun, these things. Part and parcel of working life, I suppose.
    They got what I had to give - let’s hope it’s good enough.
    Thanks to everyone for their time and advice.

    Don't know about anyone else, but I got a message to my contact email and not to publicjobs.ie messages.

    Whatever happens you’ve done your best. Good luck!




  • Anyone get any offers today?




  • What’s next stage for batch 3? Has the video interviews finished?




  • I think the interviews are finished on the 21st April, so I'd say a day or 2 for mop up interviews then results hopefully soon. &#55357;&#56911;&#55358;&#56606;

    Is that for the video interview or final interview? Just wondering as to try guess how quick they may move on batch 2! There is obviously quite a few vacancies . Thanks for the update. Best of luck.

    Thanks, yes actual interviews. The last stage is the presentation. From previous posts I see batch 2 have began offering positions already, up to number 6 I think.




  • Does anyone know how long it takes to receive results of interview and find out if you've made it to presentation stage?




  • Last time the interviews finished on a Friday and the results issued the following Wednesday. If you passed the interview you were called to stage 4. There was an almost two months gap between Stage 3 and Stage 4. It might be less this time.

  • It’s very hard to tell with interviews. Fingers crossed for you.

    Interviews are so difficult to judge. The postmortem is never good or the waiting! Best of luck .

    Waiting (not very) patiently and avoiding the temptation to email to ask them! 😬
