    I wouldn’t worry too much as that is standard wording they use all the time. Do you mind me asking what county and place where you? Are you on the Dublin panel and batch and number? My partner is on the Dublin panel batch 24 106 so just trying to see where pas is now.

    OK grand I was in the wexford panel so wouldn't be any use for you. But emailed them awhile back and they told me how many people ahead of me while waiting for offer.

    Does it look likely that a return to the office is
    on the cards for July/ August? have hoped it would be later! Just confused as Covid return to work training being rolled out. Hoping for some days remote. Is this likely or could it be a 4 day week?

    I'm in the Department of the Taoiseach and for now, they are saying we will be in the office from September with the possibility of a mix of working in the office and working from home. Not sure if the same overall policy will apply to all departments/civil service

    Hi, i had zoom interview recently for Temporary Clerical Officer in hospital & got a letter saying I have been placed on panel. I sent back the forms for garda vetting / medical / references. Does this normally take long to get a place would anyone have any idea? Also i worked as a CO grade 4 for 5 years (15 years ago) and was on LSI1 on that scale. Any idea what point I'd start at on the CO (grade 3)? TIA

    Does anyone know when the CO 2020 competition panel will be closing?

    I emailed PAS at the end of May and they said there wasn't an end date set yet.

    Hello, I have my interview for CO perm 2020 next week, i am working as a TCO atm, do i need to use AL to do interview? Also, my preparation is to have two examples for each competency and know about data protection/excel. Would I be on the right track with that as a plan?
    Thank and regards.

    I can't answer re the AL. I'd recent zoom interview for TCO and they asked about current important protocols. I wasn't really prepared for that and just mentioned GDPR and Covid practice. They didn't go into it but i guess if I'd answered in more depth my scoresheet might have reflected that. Did you have to wait long to be called as a TCO and or the position you are going for as CO was that on foot of working as TCO? Thanks and best of luck with it!

    No , you don' have to use AL. It's covered under Special leave.
    Just tell your line manager and they'll tell you what to do.

    I’m a perm CO and there is no whisper of when we will return to the office. We have been told that it’s “too early to tell” and that it’s being driven by public health guidelines.

    It depends on the department. I’m in DSP and on the office 5 days per week as I’m training. Most of the other employees are in the office 4-5 days per week as well

    Hey has anyone been called from the Cork panel lately and if so what number were you on OOM? I emailed them over the last two weeks twice and was told 253 called off OOM in the 1st email and in the 2nd 175 so was just looking to see if anyone had been called lately to know which is correct.
    Thanks in advance

    It'll be no issue but you might end up deferring your start date rather than starting and going on holiday at this point. Only issues crop up in departments which have intakes such as call taker for AGS or possibly revenue.

    Exactly, and the increment date in future would tally eith this combined service date

    Hi Vologda69, just read some of your replies about increments and starting salaries. Just wondering if you can help with my query? I have about 5 years service as a Grade 4 CO about 15 years ago. After a break bringing up kids I'm now trying to get back working & got on to a panel for TCO. I know this is the equivalent of a Grade 3 but was trying to get an idea of where I'd start on that salary. I was on LS1 on the Grade 4 (15 years ago). Thanks & hope you're getting on well with your job!

    Usually the grade would have to be similar (analagous). Public service will sometimes grant incremental credit for admin.experience. Civil service less so. I would suggest getting a letter from your previous HR dept. detailing your period of service and chase it up with the new HR section when appointed. The worst they can say is no. I got incremental credit for a grade V admin experience in an Irish university, when entering HSE as a grade III. The salary they wouldnt match. I was then able to transfer this to the Civil Service. So im near top of the scale now
