With almost 12,000 members across Ireland, the Garda Representative Association (GRA) represents serving members of Garda rank within An Garda Síochána. The Association aims to unite and organise members and provide a means for the expression of their ‘collective’ opinion on all matters affecting their interests, welfare and well-being. It comprises a Central Executive Committee in addition to Divisional and District Committees.


The Association is seeking to appoint a Deputy General Secretary who will be driven by the challenges of a high-profile national role and will help lead the GRA into the next stage of its development.


The ideal candidate will be an excellent strategist with proven negotiation, judgement and decision-making skills in an industrial relations context.

With a demonstrable understanding of policing, the person will possess the intellect, courage and outstanding communication skills required to support and deputise for the GRA General Secretary and will act as a strong, compelling public face and advocate for the Association’s members.
