If a public body wishes to carry out its own recruitment, applications can be made to the Commission for a recruitment licence. Applications can only be made by a public body which falls within the remit of the Public Service Management (Recruitment and Appointments) Act, 2004.

If you want to check if a public body falls within the remit of the Act, you can do so here.

In order to fill out this form you will need:

  • Details of the public body's current recruitment processes and procedures
  • Details of the type and level of recruitment it will carry out under licence
  • Details of how the public body will comply with the Codes of Practice

The Commission fully respects your right to privacy. For information about what we do with personal data see our Privacy Notice.
