What do people think of the new Civil Service career break scheme that was announced yesterday? I think it is a good idea and will cut the pay bill down a good bit if enough people take up the option. I got an email about it this morning and I am considering taken up the option and maybe go back to college.
Basically the offer is a 3 year career break where you will be paid up to a max of 12,600 (depending on your salary) a year for the 3 years. The money is paid quarterly in arrears. I think that Permanent TSB announced something similar a few months back. Dont know how successful it was though.
