    Don't think they have. This final step seems to be taking ages.

    I emailed recruitment for an update. Confirmed I am appointable and it goes in merit order. Said they are waiting on confirmation of when next course will be. Maybe there isn't a March intake.

    What's the odds of calls next week ?



  • Registered Users Posts: 16 pcchap


    I spoke to recruitment today on the phone, while they couldn't give me any dates on next intake it didn't seem like it would be soon. But again, they couldn't give much away on the call other than to confirm I'm appointable and they are working on the rest.

    They are never going to confirm future intakes they are always going to just give the same response. It’s just a case of wait till your called, it will come it’s just being patient which I don’t think any of us are by this point lol!

    seems the next intake of recruits has been postponed...That article on BBC News was a kick in the teeth...Doesn't quite say if March intake is just deferred to April or what the plan is but seems we are in for another delay.

    Just seen they have now paused the recruitment 😔 this is so disappointing. I’m just waiting on my medical but I guess that won’t happen now either if they aren’t going to recruit anymore?



  • Registered Users Posts: 72 ✭✭ RECRUIT2018


    Where did you see they have paused recruitment? Also does it state this should affect candidates that are already far along in the recruitment process or new/future campaigns?



  • Registered Users Posts: 106 ✭✭ DDGS7

    It’s all over the news! Because the funding has been cut they have now stopped who should have been starting garneville in March. 85 officers. Doesn’t say when it will be restarting either. So basically everything is back on hold with no time frame of how long this will be for 😔

    Absolutely gutted reading that. I just recently became appointable and had been hoping for an April/May start. Hopefully this means another delay and not cancelled altogether. Surely they won't have taken us all the way through the process just to cancel on us? Wonder how it may affect their 2021 intake if they are delaying/cancelling candidates from the 2020 campaign?



  • Registered Users Posts: 32 pcjar


    With any luck for anyone waiting this is short term and the finances can be secured to get some recruitment up and running soon.



  • Registered Users Posts: 111 ✭✭ lornzeo99


    They aren’t going to keep going with the 2021 campaign surely if they aren’t taking us after the money they have spent getting us this far? So gutting for the people that should have been in the March intake. Hopefully with the press all over this they will secure funding to begin again in April, but I guess it’s just a waiting game now



  • Registered Users Posts: 106 ✭✭ DDGS7


    If I had to pull a positive, it says some form of recruitment is preferable. Maybe pull folk through in smaller numbers to keep it moving?

    There's nothing that explicably says that nobody will go through

    Yes it doesn't seem they are cancelling recruitment but only deferring it by a month, cut March spending which the article says is 5 million which saves the required amount off the Annual budget and back at it in April perhaps, just pushes everything back another month and no more with any luck...so I hope anyway.



  • Registered Users Posts: 90 ✭✭ Newyearnewjob


    My main issue is lack of communication from recruitment. A few of us contacted them last week to ask for an update. Common decency would have been to give all applicants an update without hearing it in the news.



  • Registered Users Posts: 111 ✭✭ lornzeo99


    The lack of communication throughout the entire campaign has been a disgrace. For recruits to find this out through a Facebook news page just isn’t good enough after what we go through to get to this stage. Here’s hoping it continues in April and that they will pump in more money to keep policing numbers at a safe level.

    It just says postponed and it’s not finalised, I highly doubt it will be cancelled with a new campaign on the back burner, as they will have to exhaust our merit list before they even start looking at bringing in anyone from the next campaign. It’s just another wait, if those 85 have to wait til April to start then what’s a month on top of what we’ve waited, it is frustrating but it’s completely out of our control at the end of the day, also April is the start of the financial year so they will be getting their new budget 🤷🏽‍♂️



  • Registered Users Posts: 60 ✭✭ Elninotdog


    Gutted to say the least. Hopefully it’s just another setback rather than a complete end. Guess we will have to ride out the wait



  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]


    It will be just a set back it’s very unlikely to be a complete end



  • Registered Users Posts: 60 ✭✭ Elninotdog


    I hope you’re right. I’m kinda glad I hadn’t received the call and handed in my notice at my current job, would hate to be in that position



  • Registered Users Posts: 32 OldBenTheHermit


    They’ll not scrap recruitment completely, just more delays unfortunately. Doesn’t make sense for them to have wasted the money on a recruitment campaign and start up another one just to scrap them completely. I’d say the unfortunate March cohort are being used as the point to drive home that the government promised to increase numbers and have then 1 year later turn around and cut funding. We’ve waited 2 years, just a bit longer to go



  • Registered Users Posts: 90 ✭✭ Newyearnewjob


    I take it nobody actually got called about a start date. I am guessing they mean there are 82 appointable.

    Hope people didn't get the call and have handed notice in for their present job.
