Thinking of changing careers? Looking for a bit of a pay increase but all the jobs in your particular sector are either filled or don't pay any better?

How about throwing your CV this way.

It was revealed on Friday morning that the role of Garda Commissioner in An Garda Síochána is being advertised publicly and people can start applying. 

The successful candidate will be filling the shoes of Noirín O’Sullivan who announced her resignation from the role and from the Gardaí in 2017. 

The advertisement has been placed on under the title 'Commissioner of the Garda Síochána'.

The post reads:

"The Garda Síochána, Ireland’s national police and security service, is growing, reforming and changing. This is a unique opportunity to lead, manage and develop a service which is due to expand by up to 30% over the next few years.

"The role of Commissioner is extremely challenging, wide-ranging and high profile. It requires an exceptional candidate who is an inspirational leader, accomplished senior manager and a person of utmost integrity. You will possess the experience and stature to immediately gain respect and instil confidence across an organisation with over 16,000 people and a budget of €1.6 billion. 

"Your personal impact, leadership and communication skills will drive positive change and reform across the service. Experience in a policing role is desirable but not essential."

While "desirable", you won't get shot down for having no experience in the bag which means that you can put your name in the hat and still be in the running to grab a job where a salary “up to €250,000 may be negotiated”.

The post is for five years and the closing date for applications in on April 12, 2018. You can find more information about the job here
