My Department had the whole-time equivalent of 350 serving Social Welfare Inspectors working across several units at the end of May 2022.  The gender breakdown is 212 females and 147 males.

In addition there are 14 Gardaí seconded to the Department’s Special Investigation Unit who are also appointed as Social Welfare Inspectors in line with the 2005 Social Welfare Consolidation Act.  Their gender breakdown is 7 females and 7 males.
