So does that mean it's just that department or is it the whole civil service?

DPER are in charge of recruitment to the civil service, but the competition is for roles across the civil service.

Best of luck to everyone! I got in on the 2016 panel and I love what I’m doing now, have never looked back. Hoping many of you have the same outcome!

To be fair a lot of jobs don’t supply tea etc to staff. Don’t know why you would assume otherwise.

Money may not be great but realistically for the work you do it’s adequate. Plenty of room for promotion and training in different areas if you want.

I went in to it mainly for the working hours. Flexi time, Monday to Friday is exactly what I wanted with a young family. It’s not always about money.

What areas are these?

I always assumed that work provided tea & coffee etc., all previous jobs did.

Maybe it’s dependent on the department your assigned to but with my local division if you want you can be trained in all the different sections. They offer training courses in various fields, Microsoft packages, customer service, people management, strategic policy making to mention but a few. They will also cover tuition fees for 3rd level courses up front.

I'm fairness there's good opportunity for promotion also. I came in off 2016 panel and am already an EO. The new campaign for that should open toward the end of this year
