Written answers (Question to Justice)

Vacancies for the Data Protection Commission office in Portarlington are filled at the requisite grade from the Laois panel held by the Public Appointments Service (PAS).

From time to time competitions for specific positions within the Data Protection Commission are run via PAS.  In such instances, the competition notifications clearly state whether the position will be in the Dublin office or in the Laois office.
