New process for filling vacancies via an Expressions of Interest

For the duration of the external recruitment freeze, EOIs may also be used to fill permanent appointments by transfer at level. An EOI can also be called, subject to relevant approvals, for acting opportunities greater than six months where there is no possibility of permanency.
Health Support Services (HSS) has previously processed EOIs if they were for a period greater than six months. However, for the duration of the external recruitment freeze, EOIs that are to be advertised across all of Health, will be lodged and located on the Job Opportunities internal noticeboard. HSS will be responsible for processing and advertising these EOIs.

Alternatively, EOIs can be submitted to the Job Opportunities internal noticeboard to maximise the field of candidates. For information about Health Service/site EOI processes, please refer queries to local Workforce Services/Human Resources.
