Departmental Staff Data
My Department is required to operate within a staff ceiling figure and a commensurate administrative staffing budget.
The staffing needs for all areas within the Department are continuously reviewed, taking account of workloads, management priorities and the ongoing need to respond to new demands across a wide range of services. This is to ensure that the best use is made of available resources with a view to providing an efficient service to those who rely on the schemes operated by the Department.
At the end of January 2020 there were a total of 34 (32.43 FTE) staff employed in my Department’s office in Portlaoise. The figure for full time equivalents (FTE) takes account of staff that avail of work-share options.
