Are appointments to position within your body subject to the Public Service Management (Recruitment and Appointments) Act, 2004?
A recruitment licence can only be granted to a public body which falls within the remit of the Act. Any bodies that fall outside of its remit are not subject to oversight by the Commission or its Codes of Practice. Back to homepage

What type of recruitment licence are you applying for?
A public body can apply for either a general licence or a specific licence.
A general licence allows you to make appointments to all positions within the organisation.
A specific licence allows you to make appointments to specified positions only, for a particular purpose, where these circumstances have been outlined in advance.
