Garda Recruitment


An Garda Síochána is the national police service of Ireland. Garda recruitment competitions are run in order for eligible candidates to apply to join the force as Garda Trainees. Garda recruitment competitions for the selection of Garda Trainees attract a very high number of applicants in every campaign. Accordingly, the selection process to become a Garda Trainee is competitive, with candidates required to undertake a range of relevant assessment tests and exercises over a number of selection stages. 
 

When will the next Garda  recruitment competition take place? 

The most recent Garda recruitment campaign closed on March 16th 2022. The force recruited on a regular basis pre-pandemic in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and most recently in 2022. Budget 2023 announced funding for a 1,000 new Gardaí into Templemore next year and a new Garda recruitment campaign is expected to be launched in early 2023.

You can start preparing for the next Garda campaign now with our Stage 1 course. You will have access to the course up until after the Stage 1 assessments of the next Garda campaign whenever that may be. Those that apply when a Garda recruitment competition opens will be required to undertake aptitude tests in Stage 1 of the competition.
