Hi there. I have also just passed the Garda Clearance. I was just wondering did you get a start date and if so how long from passing clearance did you wait.thanks sorry I cant help with your query.
just wondering does a Clerical Officers salary go up to LCI 1 after 3 years service?
I worked in AGS a number of years, maybe nearly 10 years so maybe things have changed. I worked in both Ashbourne and Blanch stations.
In Ashbourne, the work was very mundane, mainly dealing with invoices and Finance side of things. People weren't the friendlist in there.
In Blanch it was a bit more varied and interesting. I worked on dealing with a lot on reports on crime and immigration and deportation things and sick reports of Garda staff. All staff in here were great, from civilians to the Gardai staff. I loved every minute of it.
As has been by other posters the work across all stations and areas are so varied so it depends where you are.
Word of worning the HR staff in Navan were nightmare to deal with in my experience!! Lazy and incompetent.
Good luck in your new job!

This is the scale for CO so you start at 24586 and after one year you go to 26195 and so on every year. LSI 1 is after 3 years at max of scale and LSI 2 is after 6 years at max of scale
I believe COs now skip point 4 and 8 on the scale though
Are there many Heos working in Garda stations and would anyone know what sort of work would they do?
As far as I know there is only a couple in divisional/regional headquarters and then the rest are in HR in Navan or HQ in phoenix Park
