Notes to editors: 

  1. Administrative officers are the second tier of administrative support staff in the NICS.
  2. Posts will be available throughout Northern Ireland and applicants will be able to state their preferences for work location and working pattern at the application stage, although there is no guarantee those preferences will can be met. 
  3. As Protestants and men are currently known to be under-represented at this grade in the NICS, and as young people (people under the age of 35), people with a disability and people from minority ethnic communities are currently under represented in the NICS, applications from these groups would be particularly welcome. All applications are considered strictly on merit.
