Written answers (Question to Education)

The Civil Service mobility scheme comes under the remit of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, and is administered through HR Shared Services.

According to information available to HR officials in my Department, the person in question applied on the 27th of August 2018 for a transfer to Zone 16, which includes a number of Departments of which one is my Department’s Athlone office. I further understand that the person is number 42 on the mobility list for my Department.

While it is not possible at this stage to give an indication if or when an offer of a transfer will be made, HR will continue to monitor movement of the mobility panel in line with filling current and upcoming vacancies.
