Publication Date : 02-07-2014
Indonesia's Administrative Reforms Ministry is resorting to online registration to recruit 100,000 employees for various positions this year.
Administrative Reforms Minister Azwar Abubakar said the ministry had relaxed and cut several recruitment requirements, such as health examination letters, to encourage more participants.
Azwar said, however, that potential candidates would need to provide certain documents immediately after they had passed the online registration in July.
“Based on calculations from past experience, we could save 150 billion rupiah [US$12.51 million] by removing the health examination letters as one of the requirements," he said.
He said the civil servant enrolment test would be held in August.
Azwar said the government would employ 65,000 civil servants and 35,000 officials on contract.
He explained that the openings were at 59 ministries and agencies and 377 regencies/cities at 405 provincial administrations in 28 provinces across the country.
The ministry and the State Civil Servant Agency will hold a simulation of the computer-based test in six big cities in July.
