An Garda Síochána Police Service Spot Highlights the True Nature of the Job


Campaign from Core aims to increase recruitment into the force from different backgrounds

An Garda Síochána Police Service Spot Highlights the True Nature of the Job

Core has developed a recruitment campaign for An Garda Síochána, for their latest recruitment competition. The target is to hire an additional 1,000 Gardaí into the police service this year, bringing the overall service to 15,000.

The campaign shows the true nature of the job – working at 4am, making arrests, being physically active, as well as the significant personal and social benefits such as engaging with communities, arresting criminals, helping victims of crime, and the camaraderie of colleagues.

The creative is compelling and sets out to seek people from different backgrounds who wouldn’t necessarily have ever considered a career with the Gardaí, as well as people overseas who might consider returning to Ireland to join An Garda Síochána. It includes a TV ad, press, radio, OOH, VOD, social media and posters in 10 different languages.

“The idea was born of conversations we had with regular serving Gardaí. We wanted to tell their authentic story, warts and all, of how tough the job could be. The ad is all shot on location and the cast features real serving members of the police service, including the radio ad voiceovers. This is an ad for and by real Gardaí not the polished ad agency version of reality. There is no job quite like it and we wanted the ad to reflect this” said Helena Jones, creative director at Core.
