PAY AND ALLOWANCES

Salary
As of 1 January 2018 the following salary scale applies to Recruit Prison Officers:

PPC €28,690.00 €30,113.00 €32,941.00

NORMAL MAX
A different pay scale may apply if the individual has previously worked in the Public Service.

Entry will be at the minimum point of the scale.
Work on Saturday, Sunday, public holidays and nights attract premium payments.

Recruit Prison Officers will also receive other allowances e.g. Operational Allowance (8% of annual
salary).

The allocation of up to 360 additional hours will attract further premium payments.

The Additional Hours System provides for extra attendance by staff.

It involves the allocation of up to 360 hours maximum per person per annum. (Under this system a lower number of
hours may be allocated, i.e. 240 hours, 112 hours, or nil hours.)

Bare in mind that the position you fill if you are successful will be in Dublin. It will most likely be Mountjoy (Phibsboro, Dublin 7) or Wheatfield/Cloverhill (Clondalkin, Dublin 22).

I know you can still pass if you've had the Probation Act applied to you. That's the one where you may have been charged with something minor, but they wipe your slate clean if you stay out of trouble and it goes away.

Not too sure of the situation you've presented though. Non payment of a fine doesn't affect you leaving the country or applying to must jobs but this isn't exactly most jobs either. Maybe just keep it quiet unless you're explicitly asked about it.

Hopefully this campaign won't be as drawn out as the last one, though that may be wishful thinking.
