    They've merged with the national mapping agency and valuation office now into an entity called Tailte-Eireann ttps://www.tailte.ie. They will be moving to a new office in Smithfield shortly as well.


    Workload would be average enough, you wouldn't be too stressed and hours would be around 35 per week. Not sure how WFH is there but I believe it's 4 in and 1 out and they're not too keen offering even one day outside the office. This could change with the merger though. Just something to keep in mind unless you don't mind the commute into the city centre.

    I was told they won't be moving into it until late 2024.

    I was also told that the one day is given pretty reluctantly as most of it is paper based, so very little can be done from home.

    Thanks so much that’s great info to have. Do you know is it family friendly for the different types of leave like shorter year, parental ect? I know it would likely vary by section but just in general?

    The move is to a new building in Smithfield in 2024. It's only 5 mins away from the Four Courts.

    The one day a week at home is given reluctantly and mostly only after you have finished your one year probation. I don't think COs can work at home only EO upwards. It depends on your area as apart from mapping, most work is paper based so it is not straight forward to work at home. For this reason, plenty of EOs who theoretically could work a day at home, actually don't because of the hassle involved. Apart from annual leave, you really need your one year probation over before you look for any type of other leave. Parental leave is generally fine again after a year. In the past, the shorter working year with the summers off was a staple for many of the women which resulted in departments being practically empty for the summer months. So it has been cut back on loads. I'm not sure it's very common at all now. A lot of long timers there so you kind of need to put in some time before you go asking for everything.

    In general, it really depends on what section you are in. Upper management not generally liked.
