The authorised staff sanction for the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) is currently 106.4 Whole Time Equivalents. The RTB is carrying 17 vacancies at present as outlined in the table below, for which a number of recruitment campaigns are currently being planned.
|Grade||Vacancy||Salary Band for Grade |

|EO||9||€31,698 - €52,894|
|CO||6||€25,339 – €41,504|
The RTB is responsible for its own recruitment and in this regard my Department does not hold further information on these campaign timelines or costs. However, the Clerk of the Dáil requested that arrangements be put in place to facilitate the provision of information by State Bodies to members of the Oireachtas. Following the issue of Circular LG (P) 05/16 on 20 September 2016 from my Department, the RTB set up a dedicated email address for this purpose and may be contacted at OireachtasMembersQueries@rtb.ie.
