WITHDRAWAL OF RECENT STAFF RECRUITMENT FOR THE NATIONAL SERVICE SCHEME
The management of the National Service Scheme (NSS), has on the advice of the Minister of Education, withdrawn the National Service staff recruitment which was done in December 2016 with immediate effect.
This decision is informed by a thorough consideration of violations of due process prior to recruitment.
These included petitions to the Public Services Commission (PSC) against the recruitment process upon which the PSC in a letter dated 16th November, 2016, advised the former Ag. Executive Director to halt the recruitment process until the matter was properly resolved. This was however ignored and the appointment letters were issued to some persons on 15th December, 2016.
Management therefore wishes to advise persons affected by this decision to look forward to a new opportunity to have the staff recruitment properly carried out.
Ag. Executive Director
