The notional annual direct cost (includes salary, employer PRSI as well as superannuation) associated with employing an additional five full-time Senior Superintending Veterinary Inspectors (SSVI) and twenty Superintending Veterinary Inspectors (SVI) would be approximately €2.84 million.

It is important to note that neither of the grades referenced are recruitment-level grades – Veterinary Inspector (VI) is the entry point for the veterinary stream within my Department. The first point of the salary scale for the Veterinary Inspector grade is €56,616.
