How do I join An Garda Síochána?
Applications for the position of Garda Trainee are made by way of an online application process which is managed by the Public Appointments Service. To receive notification of forthcoming Garda Trainee recruitment campaigns as they arise, you must register as a member of http://www.publicjobs.ie
Once you have completed the registration process, log in and click on My Job Alerts, select Security/Emergency Services and then click on Garda. You will be notified by e-mail when a recruitment campaign is beginning. At that stage you will be invited to make an application on http://www.publicjobs.ie
Once you have made your application, you will be invited to book a time and date to attend for Stage One assessment. The number of applicants in each group will be limited and on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. However those who do not manage to gain entry to a particular group will be treated as a priority applicant in subsequent assessment sessions. Applicants are permitted to undergo elements of the selection process only once within any six month period.
