THE GOVERNMENT IS looking to hire 200 graduates to fill positions within the civil service.

A graduate recruitment campaign was launched yesterday by Minister for Public Expenditure Brendan Howlin. It is expected that 200 vacancies will be filled from these competitions.

“The wide range of roles within the civil service offer many exciting career opportunities and I would encourage graduates to apply to join the civil service,” the minister said.

A number of opportunities will be advertised over the coming weeks, including:

  • Administrative officer in the civil service;
  • Graduate economist with the Irish government economic and evaluation service;
  • Trainee auditor in the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General;
  • Junior diplomat/third secretary in the Department of Foreign Affairs;
  • Legal researchers.

The department said candidates will be offered a “very competitive salary and excellent working conditions”.

All of these 2015 graduate campaigns will be open for applications until midnight on 15 of October 2015. More information about the posts can be found here.
