The Public Service Commission is on track to have Permanent Secretaries recruited by the end of the year.
Chairman for the Public Service Commission, Vishnu Mohan, says following the decision to outsource the recruitment process, Expressions of Interest were advertised in New Zealand, Australia and through the Fiji Missions overseas as well as in the local newspapers.
He says they have received a good response and are confident of finalizing the appointment of a Human Resources consultancy firm within this month.
Permanent Secretary positions are the most senior level executive positions in the Civil Service.
Mohan says it is imperative that Permanent Secretaries be recruited through transparent, independent and robust processes of advertising, short listing, interviewing and vetting.
PSC expects to have the best qualified and most suitable candidates in the twenty one Permanent Secretary positions by the end of the year.
The contracts of the current Permanent Secretaries have been extended till the end of the year to allow time for the recruitment process to take place
