The Office of the Financial Services and Pensions Ombudsman (FSPO) has advised me that as of 19 September 2022, the FSPO has an approved staff complement of 90.2, with 2.6 vacancies. This number of vacancies takes account of contracts due to commence, including that of the Financial Services and Pensions Ombudsman, commencing on 1 December 2022.

The current vacancies are at Higher Executive Officer (1.6) and Executive Officer Grade (1). The FSPO generally conducts recruitment by way of competitions at specific grades, to establish panels from which current and future vacancies are filled. The FSPO will determine the appropriate assignment of qualifying candidates in accordance with strategic and operational needs and the qualifications and experience of the qualifying candidates. Full-year costs are based on Circular 04/2022 and the filling of vacancies at the first point of the scale.

Vacancies Full-year cost Intended timeline for filling vacancies
Higher Executive Officer (1.6) €50,848 x 1.6 = €81,356.80 November 2022
Executive Officer (1) €31,698 x 1 = €31,698 February 2023
