    Just tell them about the holidays when being offered assignment. They might hold you off starting til you come back Or depending how long the holiday is and how long your placement you might have enough holiday entitlement to cover it


    the placements can be 3 months or 6 months or maybe longer and they might get extended but it won’t lead to a permanent position. You would have to apply for the permanent clerical officer panel to get a permanent role.

    ya When it’s over it’s over and you have to start again. There seems to be tco panels being run several times a year now though so keep an eye out for next one. You won’t have to keep interviewing each time if you have been through an interview for a tco in the last 3 years.

    It's worth noting (and I've had some colleagues in the CS who confirmed TCOs they worked with being made permanent) that some depts seem to have a separate internal permanent panel that is built from TCOs working there, where the managers requested to retain them. In the 2023 TCO booklet;

    TENURE

    Assignments will be to a temporary position. The duration and period of a temporary contract will vary from post to post. There is no entitlement to a permanent position.

    Notwithstanding the above paragraph on tenure, we retain the right to consider holding a confined Selection Process for permanent appointment to certain positions within the Civil Service in certain limited circumstances. Any such process will be held in compliance with the Commission for Public Service Appointments (CPSA) Code of Practice.

    Hi everyone!

    I have recently gotten clearance for my Garda vetting, and the Garda bureau told me that they told PAS.

    Just wondering how long it will be before PAS will be in contact with me so I can start!

    If anyone has any experience in this situation, would be greatly appreciated!


    Thanks,

    Conor.

    Hey, does anyone know how long they continue to place from the B panel now that the C panel is open for applications?



  • Registered Users Posts: 76 ✭✭koifish


    The booklet says "It is not envisaged that appointments will be made from this competition after 31st December 2023" for TCO 2023B. I think C is more nationwide/different counties from the B panel.

    TCO 2023C is specifically for Clare, Cork, Galway, Kerry, and Limerick. I would imagine that's because their panels are depleted or close to it.

    Starting on Monday in DSP on an 18 week contract, I'm in for the permanent competition aswell but haven't sat the interview yet.

    Question is, how likely will the DSP extend my contract when it's up?

    I'm hoping to have Sat and passed interview for permanent role to ease the mind before then.

    How much notification did you get for start date.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10 CelticRiddle


    Just under 2 weeks.

    If it's a fixed contract, then not likely, but possible. However, if it's an open contract then there's every possibility that it will be. From what I've seen with DSP, they issue a lot of open contracts and extend if they're satisfied with your work.

    Apologies if this was answered elsewhere, but are the 2023 and 2023B panels separate? If I refuse a contract on one panel, am I still considered for the other? Thanks all :)

    Hi all, I have applied for the Temporary Clerical Officer 2023C role. It has been almost 2 weeks since the assessment date passed, I'm just wondering how long do you normally wait to hear back on your results?



  • Registered Users Posts: 43 eyeheartcapybara


    This is normal, we should hear back sometime this week



  • Registered Users Posts: 36 berniegirl

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,941 ✭✭✭cute geoge


    I got placed 46 for Kerry what are the chance of me getting interview ,had everyone an option of 2 locations



  • Registered Users Posts: 36 berniegirl


    Sorry about that.. my bad.. I just checked I’ve only one location on my application for Temporary.. I’ve applied for the permanent CO too so assumed I’d picked two areas..



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,139 ✭✭✭mrsdewinter


    Gawd almighty. My second tilt at CO and I'm waaay down the field. I've been working since the 1990s, how can I be this bad at figuring out what to do in these makey-uppy scenarios?



  • Registered Users Posts: 11 DaftCat


    Got an OOM of 73 for Cork but I had to choose two locations so chose Kerry as my second.



  • Registered Users Posts: 36 berniegirl


    In the permanent I got late 200s in one location and early 400s in the other 🤷‍♀️ I didn’t spend as long thinking about the temporary scenario this time around.. just selected my first thoughts 😏
