Phase 1B of the civil service mobility scheme is now open for applications. This phase allows for the movement of clerical and executive officers within Dublin.
Under the scheme, head-to-head transfers, interdepartmental transfers and secondments are no longer valid arrangements, and all transfer requests must be made through the new process.
The scheme is one of a number of arrangements that has been put in place to expeand career and mobility opportunities for staff across geographic, organisational and sectoral boundaries.
Negotiations for the next phase are now underway. It will address mobility mechanisms for higher executive officers (HEO), administrative offices (AO) and assistant principle (AP) grades.
