The Government has indicated that top-level specialist positions are the areas in greatest need of pay rises in the public service and that in the main, remuneration levels for State employees at other levels are very attractive.
In a confidential submission to the new Public Service Pay Commission which is looking at remuneration for all 300,000 people on the State payroll including gardaí, teachers and civil servants the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform said there was no problem in recruiting new entrants to the public service in general on existing terms.
So some specialist positions need higher pay to recruit desirable candidates. Otherwise no problem in recruiting staff. I suppose in nursing and medicine just not Irish ones.
So in the main no need for pay increases in ps?
