Written answers (Question to Defence)

Civilian employees are employed to support the operational capability of the Defence Forces and work in military installations. Recruitment of such employees is an on-going process, with vacancies being identified and filled on a priority basis following engagement with the military authorities.

There is currently a civilian position for a Craftworker (Carpenter) vacant in Custume Barracks. The closing date for receipt of applications has recently passed and interviews for the position are expected to be held in the coming weeks. My Department has not been advised of any vacancy for a painter and decorator in Custume Barracks at this time.
