    Yes, it is. As soon as you get it you have to wear it.

    I think it's in the same location as Cloverhill Prison.

    I am high 220's on OOM and I havn't heard a single thing since getting my result in November 2019. Not sure where they even are on the first batch of 131. It goes without saying that I amn't holding out much hope at all though..

    Hey, just wondering what the process is for starting for anyone who has started? How long is the training and would I be starting right away? Just got a call about a position available in my area and didn't get a lot of info over the phone!

    It all depends and with covid they may just send you straight into the location and not training in the college. Did they give you a start date?

    Yeah start date is in November. So it would be on the job training instead of college?

    It could be a mixture of both, I think they are running reduced classes in the college due to covid.

    Thanks for the reply Kimbot!

    I've got my contract and says training in the college will start on the 23rd of November. Any one else contacted about positions available and starting around then too?

    Hi all, I have received a message in regards to an expression of interest. I'm wondering If I express interest in one or both (if that's possible) areas. Will this then exclude me from future areas? I'm just not too sure how this works.. Thanks.

    What were the expressions of interest?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,115 ✭✭✭job seeker


    What were the expressions of interest?

    Dublin and Shelton Abbey, Co. Wicklow.

    Doesn't really mean much for me at the end of the day though, as it's likely they'll get enough people to fill the current vacancies before my OOM.. So it's neither here nor there..

    If you don't mind me asking what was your OOM?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,115 ✭✭✭job seeker

    No problem at all!

    OOM: 228



    EDIT: How long do these things go on? Do they be extended? I saw that I got this result on my message board on 14/11/19.

    Which is nearly a year and a half ago.. As well as this, we seem to be the only two people waiting to hear something! :D
