Information in relation to judicial vacancies may be obtained on www.jaab.ie.
It should also be noted that The Standards in Public Office Act, 2001, as amended, prohibits the Board from recommending a person for judicial office unless the person has furnished to the Board a relevant tax clearance certificate (TCC SIPO) that was issued to the person not more than 18 months before the date of a recommendation. Applicants are therefore advised to ensure the tax clearance certificate (TCC SIPO) is in date, and where such a certificate requires renewal or has not already been furnished, applicants should make early contact with the Office of the Revenue Commissioners to ensure that a certificate can be processed and available for inclusion with their application.
Applicants may, at the discretion of the Board, be required to attend for interview.
Canvassing is prohibited.
