Up to 3,000 staff will be recruited into the public sector where necessary to maintain services, mainly in health and education, public expenditure minister Brendan Howlin has told the Dáil.
The recruitments will be possible because the number of departures in 2011, together with estimated retirement numbers for 2012, means “we are on track to meet our target for 2012 of 294,400, exceeding the target set by the previous Government by two years”, Howlin said.
