Everything you need to know about 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.
Next Garda Recruitment Campaign
Whilst we do not know exactly when this will be, we expect another competition to launch in 2024 as the force have committed to ongoing recruitment. We also offer a Free Job Alert service which you can sign up to in order to stay informed of the next campaign. Start preparing for the next campaign with our renowned Garda preparation courses.
