The Public Appointments Service, formerly the Office of the Civil Service and Local Appointments Commissioners, is the centralised provider of recruitment, assessment and selection services for the Civil Service. We also provide recruitment and consultancy services to local authorities, the Health Service Executive, An Garda Síochána and other public bodies. The organisation has continued to evolve, moving from a paper-only application process to an internet-driven, online application procedure that is second to none, utilising innovative technology to centralise and streamline the recruitment process through our website www.publicjobs.ie.
The Public Appointments Service is recognised as the leading recruiter for public service jobs in Ireland. Our website www.publicjobs.ie is one of the main channels used for managing and delivering our business. Publicjobs.ie is the main access route for candidates interested in joining the public service. Our aim with this website is to provide a comprehensive on-line recruitment facility, which is easy to use and effective for both clients and candidates.
We will source the highest quality candidates for positions in the civil service and public service and we will facilitate the movement of public servants within, and between, sectors in accordance with the needs of clients, thus ensuring a more efficient and appropriate resourcing of essential services.
