KIGALI INDEPENDENT UNIVERSITY AND ULK POLYTECHNIC INSTITUTE STUDENTS SENSITISED ON RECRUITMENT PROCESS IN PUBLIC SERVICE.
Kigali On 18th October 2023 morning, a National Public Service Commission delegation met with Kigali Independent University and ULK Polytechnic Institute students, to enlighten and sensitise them on the public service recruitment process.
Opening this meeting, the ULK Vice-Chancellor Prof. Dr NKUNDABATWARE Innocent urged students to take this important meeting as an opportunity as they are preparing to enter into the labour market.
Mr. Wellars KANYEBENJA, the delegation lead, shared the historical background that lead to the creation of the National Public Service Commission–subsequently the E-Recruitment platform– was the bad leadership in Rwanda prior to 1994. The commission is one of the main pillars of the Rwandan Government’s plan to improve service delivery across government institutions.
“Among our responsibilities, we verify whether public institutions recruit staff using transparent and equitable candidate selection system, and analyse reports on staff recruitment competitions organised by public institutions and placement of staff, and of course we verify whether public institutions comply with laws, regulations and decisions relating to the management of public servants.” He added.
When interacting with the Commission, the final year students shared that It is really a good initiative, and that I am going to capitalise on these job opportunities keeping in mind that recruitment process in public service is transparent.
Normally, the National Public Service Commission promotes professional conduct and behaviour in the public service as well as how public servants fulfil their obligations in accordance with human resources management laws, and it carries out research on human resource management and on entities providing public services in order to make recommendations to Government.
