Joint Oireachtas Committee on Children and Youth Affairs

Recruitment and Retention of Social Workers: Tusla

Mr. Pat Smyth:

Yes, we are in direct communication. While the social workers are employed by a private company directly and the private company works with us to supply those social workers, we are constantly advertising. Those staff are working in areas where there are vacancies so they are very aware that as campaigns emerge they are in first place.
