    Yes I applied too. Just got a message this morning which laid out the next steps. Shortlisting to commence week of 2nd March.

    Best of luck to everyone... was going to apply but just missed the deadline... am on the panel for the main PO open competition though..

    Interesting approach compared to the "ordinary" PO competition - shortlisting followed by "preliminary interviews" - no aptitude tests etc? My guess is these will be the remote video type ones and a further shortlisting from that.

    Indeed.. I applied for the AP ICT digital posts last year and didn't even get called to interview and yet am placed reasonably well on the PO open panel and my background is in ICT Management.. just goes to show how random and imprecise the procedures are

    The date spread of the interviews suggests it is straight to interview. Without video interview step.

    I doubt it. It seems as though they have streamlined the process for the IT positions within the CS, there arent aptitude tests though I'm not sure if there are presentations to do.

    Does anyone have the information booklet for this competition


  • Registered Users Posts: 82 ✭✭ Tr1ckieD1ckie


    Not a candidate for this- but soon to start as a PO from the open panel. Anyone know of anyone put on this panel, or appointed?

    I was put on Group B shortlisting interviews held recently- waiting for results, anyone else on the same boat.
