This job or a very similar one appeared a while back. Presumably there is a similar temporary need for extra hands. If I was interested, there are a series of questions that the advert raises in my mind. Basically they want a typed and current police line pilot, but they don't say when or for how long. Any such pilot would need to fit it in around his other commitments.
It seems to be written by a HR bod, so things get expressed very differently from how would be normal in aviation, in my experience. Much easier, if they quoted a day or shift rate (or even a rate for a cycle of shifts on the roster).
I guess there will be few suitable candidates on the Emerald Isle, so non-chargeable flight transport costs will be a big variable that the job description does not allow a candidate to estimate.

Mr Akinbobola is employed by Bristow HR department in Nigeria, but as 212 man says, the interviews are for those selected for their Nigerian sponsored cadet programme, which is only open to Nigerian graduates - the adverts for applications were in the local papers a few months back.
They may be looking for some qualified S76 pilots though if you're typed on it and have offshore experience.
Thanks - Thats what I thought was odd. I was sent an email inviting me to interview, with some basic info on the cadet program, but as a non-nigerian national I wasn't sure why, and wouldn't have applied on that basis, or seen an ad in a local nigerian paper... (But I did apply for something else with Bristow in Africa). Must have been a mix up. Cheers for the clarification
If an organisation wants to encourage good candidates it is a good idea to provide the sort of detail such a candidate would reasonably want.
It is all a question of perspective of course, but as I read it, it is the lowest (or one of the lowest) rates for a current police helicopter pilot in the UK. If you add all the costs of transport and accommodation (which the pilot would personally need to cover), and no idea of duration, it just increases uncertainty. A current, typed police pilot will be comparing rates with what HE can get doing the same work elsewhere. What other people working for PSNI are paid may not be very persuasive for a candidate.
Not trying to be awkward, but helpful. I have flown at PSNI and enjoyed it.
One of the pilots made redundant by NPAS might not have found a place yet, but I would not hold your breath?
