  • carrying out interviews with applicants for international protection under the International Protection Act, 2015 and undertaking specified follow up functions in this regard;
  • interviewing applicants for subsidiary protection under the European Union (Subsidiary Protection) Regulations, 2013 (and any amendments thereto) and undertaking specified follow up functions in this regard;
  • producing a reasoned, balanced and legally robust report/submission to an officer of the Minister on cases to be considered under section 3 of the Immigration Act, 1999 (and potentially section 4 of the Immigration Act 2004);
  • representing the Minister via the International Protection Office at appeal hearings in respect of applications for international protection, subsidiary protection and transfer decisions under the EU Dublin III Regulation at the International Protection Appeals Tribunal.
