The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions employs professionally qualified lawyers (solicitors and barristers) and legal executives in its legal divisions.  In addition, we employ a range of civil service grades to provide the human resources, information and communications technology, and other support services required by our Office.

Recruitment to general civil service grades, such as Clerical Officer and Executive Officer, is made centrally through the Public Appointments Service.  Recruitment of lawyers is handled either directly by the Office under licence from the Commission for Public Service Appointments or through the Public Appointments Service.  Recruitment competitions are advertised in national newspapers and on this website.  Where the Public Appointments Service recruits on behalf of our Office, these competitions are also advertised on their website at www.publicjobs.ie.

From time to time we recruit a small number of legal staff, mainly at Prosecutor level, on temporary fixed term contract basis.
