Interview Expenses

This page provides details of the process and forms involved in claiming interview expenses. 

Who can claim expenses?

If you are a candidate who has recently attended for an interview or an external assessor who has participated in an interview panel you may be entitled to claim expenses incurred while travelling to, and staying in, Dublin. 

If you are entitled to make a claim for reimbursement this will be clearly indicated in the email inviting you for an interview along with the remit of that entitlement. 

Note: It is imperative that all receipts are presented with your expense claim form in order to receive your reimbursement. Below you will find a brief you need to take when submitting an expense claim and the relevant form for completion.
