Govt Wants Civil Service To Be First Career Choice, Says Sidek - Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR, May 13 (Bernama) -- The government will offer job positions and salaries that are competitive to make the civil service the first choice for a career among job seekers, said Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan.

He said the government would soon introduce remuneration and employment schemes that would be attractive to job seekers based on their academic qualifications and work experience.

"As an example, if an applicant had 10 years experience in the private sector and is interested in joining the civil service, he will not have to begin from the bottom but will be put on a scale commensurate to his experience," he told reporters after participating in Radio Television Malaysia's "Dialog" programme at Angkasapuri here tonight.

At the same time, high performers already in the civil service would also be duly rewarded in terms or promotions and increase in pay irrespective of which grade they were in, he added.
