TV licence inspectors hitting doorsteps in parts of Kildare
19:52 Tuesday 13th of February 2018

TV licence inspectors are currently visiting homes in many parts of Kildare.

A total of more than one million people paid the €160 fee last year but there are still hundreds of thousands of evaders across the country.

Teams of inspectors are involved in callling to doors and homes in Newbridge and Kildare Town were called to in recent days.

The law states that any property that has a TV set must have a TV licence.

An Post prosecuted thousands of cases through the courts for non-payment of the licence last year and a small number were even jailed.

TV licences can be paid at www.tvlicence.ie.

€433.87 per week

Last September, An Post said it was setting up a panel for Temporary TV Licence Inspectors from which temporary vacancies will be filled.

It said some temporary positions will be filled immediately such as in the Naas area and others as the need arises.

The terms and conditions of the job were set out as follows:

Staff will have a 37.5 hours per week, and a 5 day week, Monday to Saturday attendance liability.

A Basic Pay Scale of €433.87 per week applies.

There is a TV Inspection allowance of €18.07 per week and a Saturday allowance of €16.91.

Mileage and Subsistence will be paid as appropriate. The position attracts 21 days paid holidays a year.

There is also an additional incentive scheme based on visits and sales achieved.
