Overview: The Irish Government made provision for the temporary reassignment of public servants. All Civil and Public Service bodies must identify employees who can be released from their ordinary roles.

An automated system will match the temporary assignee with the required role identified by location preference, job category, experience and skills and put them in contact with their new temporary manager.
