Can't see anything about job descriptions and eligibility requirements on OP's link.
Can someone please advise on eligibility? I have a level 8 honours degree, is that enough? Or do you need to have a few years experience in the CS?

Great! Is it my imagination or are there an unusually large number of campaigns going on at the moment? I naively assumed that there'd be a hiring embargo due to Covid

From a PR (and economics) perspective the government will not want to send out the message that their is an embargo so Id very much expect it to look like business as normal.
Very much different behind the scenes though. The panels will move much slower and the numbers taken will see a massive reduction compared to previous comptetitions.

There are people in the AO position currently offering advice in the form of one-to-one video calls on gradIreland's website. Register for the gradIreland fair and book an appointment with one of them. Received some extremely solid advice from two of them today and would recommend that others do the same.

If you apply for several streams for the AO competition, do you have to do separate aptitude tests for each stream or would they use the results of your first attempt for the other streams?

This is an oddly short closing date, no?

Has anybody applied for this already?
Not the same as before or am I missing something?
I clicked apply and there was 1 single form to fill out

Yes, but it was much the same last year.
This is similar to last year too. I think the next stage will be the online tests and they whittle the numbers down from there. I presume there'll be a more detailed form at some stage down the line. This way saves some hassle for everybody involved. You may fill out the form at a later date if you progress and PAS only has to screen these forms, which is far less than the amount to be screened if every applicant submitted one.

Ah OK. Few years since I did the AO one. It was 2 full forms last time I did it. One online and one you download. Thanks

Its says 'Nationwide' on the business/finance info page but dublin elsewhere...
With remote working in place for a long time, might be worth sticking application in
