Public Sector Staff Recruitment

Luke 'Ming' Flanagan

207. Deputy Luke 'Ming' Flanagan asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform his views on whether an anomaly has been created by the recent temporary clerical officer 2014 competition, in that it impacts on the already successful candidates from the existing established clerical officer panel created by Civil Service clerical officer competition number 07/089/10; this anomaly arises because of the Government moratorium on public sector appointments which has been compounded now by the insertion of a clause in this year’s term time clerical officer 2014 competition that may allow in certain circumstances some successful candidates to be invited for further assessment to fill a few clerical officer roles on a permanent basis later; furthermore since the old competition has not expired, there could now exist two pools of candidates to fill any of the appointments; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
