Progress on Philippine’s Civil Service Commission portal

More than 7,000 positions have been made available for job applicants through the Civil Service Commission’s (CSC) website since September of this year, according to a press release.

The CSC Job portal allows job seekers, interested to work in government, to search for vacancies. Apart from the position title and place of assignment, the job postings contain the salary grade and monthly salary, the qualification standards that need to be met by the applicant, documents to be submitted, and instructions on how to apply.

In using the CSC Job Portal, job seekers can customise their search by filtering the list by position title, agency name, and region. For example, those who want to teach may type “Teacher” under the position title or choose “Department of Education” under the agency name, then choose the region where they wish to be assigned.

Similarly, vacancies are also posted at CSC Field Offices (CSC FO), the CSC said. It has more than a hundred field offices nationwide. In CSC Resolution No. 2000221, routed through Memorandum Circular No. 25, s. 2020 (Adoption of a Unified Platform for Publication of Vacant Positions in the Government in the CSC Website Including Third-Level Vacant Positions), the Commission has instructed all government agencies to submit their list of vacant positions in the career service that are authorised to be filled, in electronic and printed copies, to the CSC FO concerned.

The printed copy shall be posted by the CSC FO in its bulletin board, while the electronic copy shall be forwarded to the CSC Regional Office, which shall publish the vacancies in the CSC Job Portal. Vacancies to be posted shall include first-level, second-level, and third-level career positions.

First-level positions include clerical, trades, crafts, and custodial service positions, which involve non-professional or subprofessional work in a non-supervisory or supervisory capacity requiring less than four years of collegiate studies.

Second-level includes professional, technical, and scientific positions that involve professional, technical, or scientific work in a non-supervisory or supervisory capacity requiring at least four years of college work. While the third level covers positions in the Career Executive Service, all of whom are appointed by the President.

In September, the CSC lined up several activities for the 120th Philippine Civil Service Anniversary including an online career fair for job seekers. It was the first time that the career fair will be held online, so the commission encouraged job seekers to avail themselves of the opportunity for employment, especially for those who lost their jobs due to the pandemic, as OpenGov Asia reported earlier.

Even with the new normal celebration of the anniversary, activities were successfully conducted like the regional amateur video contest, national online photography contest, and quiz for government employees.

The third week of September is dubbed as the ‘Linggo ng Malasakit’ where job seekers can view employment opportunities from the various government line agencies and local government units (LGUs) and submit their applications online.

This year, during week one, the Commission kicked-off the celebration at the regional office with a virtual press conference in partnership with the PIA Regional Office 1 and launched online learning and development courses led by the Civil Service Institute (CSI).
