Written answers (Question to Justice)

I wish to advise the Deputy that staff can express an interest in moving to other areas of the Department and this is taken into consideration when filling vacancies.

Mobility for Department of Justice staff to agencies under the remit of the Department such as An Garda Síochána, Courts Service, Legal Aid Board, etc. can be applied for through Peoplepoint (the human resources shared service centre for the Civil Service) and is managed by the HR functions of these agencies.
