Defence Forces - Recruitment

The Irish Defence Forces have opened a new recruitment competition for entrants to the Army, the Air Corps and the Naval Service.

The closing date for applications for this competition is Friday 27th October 2017.

Announcing the latest recruitment drive, Minister of State for Defence Paul Kehoe said "the move reflects the Government’s commitment to meeting the Permanent Defence Forces strength targets ... This general service recruitment campaign will build upon the successes of previous recruitment campaigns from which it is expected that just over 800 new personnel will have been inducted into the Permanent Defence Force by the end of 2017.... As this will deplete existing panels, it is now appropriate that we initiate a new campaign in order to provide for the induction of further personnel in 2018.”

Entry Requirements 

The Defence Forces require men and women from all backgrounds that possess a strong sense of duty, enjoy working as part of a team, and are looking for a rewarding yet challenging career.

Age

Army applicants must be at least 18 years old and under the age of 25 years of age on the closing date for applications.

Naval Service applicants must be at least 18 years old and under the age of 27 years of age on the closing date for applications.

Locations:

When making an application for General Service Recruitment applicants should be aware that the areas of responsibility that applicants apply to are as follows:

1 Brigade - Cork Interview Centre Cork, Carlow, Clare, Galway, Kerry, Kilkenny, Laois, Limerick, Offaly, Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford

2 Brigade - Dublin/Curragh Interview Centre Dublin, Cavan, Donegal, Kildare, Leitrim, Longford, Louth, Mayo, Meath, Monaghan, Roscommon, Sligo, Westmeath and Wicklow.

Where possible the Defence Forces will facilitate applicants to conduct fitness testing and interview at a location closest to their home.

Qualifications

No formal education qualifications are required to join the Defence Forces as a recruit. However, you must satisfy the Interview Board and the Recruiting Officer that you possess a sufficient standard of education for service in the Defence Forces.

Closing Date for this competition: 23:59hrs on Friday 27th October 2017.
