Ireland is blessed with thousands of public sector workers who strive to make our country a better place. From the dedicated staff of the HSE through to the Garda the fire service, the civil service and local authorities…these are the people who work long hours to make sure we stay safe, secure, healthy and generally looked after.

At Gibson & Associates, we want to recognise and celebrate these people. That’s why we’re launching our “Public-Sector Heroes” competition.

We’re giving you the opportunity to nominate the important people in your life who work in the Irish public sector. We want to hear your inspiring stories about the real people who contribute to making Ireland what it is. It’s a chance to celebrate their commitment and achievements.

Why the competition?

It’s no secret that the Irish public sector faces enormous challenges. Every other week there’s a news story highlighting the problems faced by the public sector, including the difficult and often dangerous conditions public sector workers are forced to work in.

At Gibson & Associates, we understand that these working conditions can make what are already incredibly stressful jobs even more difficult. This competition is our way of reaching out to public-sector workers across Ireland, highlighting the good that they do day-in-day-out. We want to make them feel as appreciated and acknowledged as they deserve.

How to get involved

If you’re lucky enough to know a public-sector worker who you think deserves to be celebrated, share their story with us on Facebook.

To nominate someone, simply tag your public-sector hero in the comments of our Facebook competition post:

Plus, if you want to, you can also tell us a little bit about why they should win. Maybe there’s a specific story you want to share about their achievements? Let us know!  It can focus on one particular event or simply their day-to-day commitment to the cause.

We’ll regularly share the comments with the most inspiring stories, and the comment with the most likes at the end of the competition at 5 pm on Monday 8th January will be crowned the ultimate Public-Sector Hero.

What’s the prize?

We want all public-sector workers to feel appreciated, valued and to know that people are aware of how important their jobs are. By giving you the opportunity to nominate your Public Service Hero and shout out about their achievements – we hope we can do just that.

For one lucky winner, there’s more. The Public-Sector worker who receives the most Facebook likes will receive a luxury hotel weekend break for two, giving them and a companion a chance to really relax and unwind.

Start nominating your Public-Sector Hero now! It’s time to get involved. We can’t wait to hear all about the amazing people who work hard to keep our families and country safe.
