Staff Officer Recruitment Competition IRC275969

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department of Finance (Northern Ireland),

1. The total number of current vacancies at SO grade throughout the NICS. This may require input from all departments and if so, I am happy for you to treat this as a round robin request and answer on behalf of all other department; however as NICSHR is the centralised HR function for the NICS and tasked with placing successful candidates into vacant posts declared, it should already hold this information.

2. Can you please advise which numbers on the merit list from the initial assessment are next to be called for interview and when that is planned to happen. E.g. assessment merit list 950-1249 are due to be called for interview before end of November 2022.

3. Can you please advise the proposed timeline for this competition with interviews and placements going forward. E.g. January 2023 Interviews 1450-1949, February 2023 placement letters for successful candidates from interview phase 3 etc.

Yours faithfully,

Kerr Nicholls
