People looking for work in the public sector will find now it easier if they have access to the internet.

The government is replacing its paper-based recruitment process with an online version.

A vacancies website launched today (Monday) enables candidates to search, view and apply for public service jobs on the internet.

The government says the e-recruitment system will speed up the process for both the employer and prospective employee, cutting the administration time spent on processing applications.

Applicants will be able to register for tailored job alerts and will receive notifications when a vacancy becomes available that meets the criteria they have set.

As an applicant progresses through the recruitment process they will also be able to monitor the progress of their application, arrange interviews and accept offers all through the online facility.

The new system was developed by the Office of Human Resources.

The executive director of the Office of Human Resources, Jon Callister, said: ‘Although the overall size of government’s workforce is shrinking, it still deals with several thousand job applications every year, and under the old process that created a lot of time-consuming paperwork.

‘The new system should be much more efficient and effective for both government and its prospective employees. This is another good example of government streamlining its internal workings to make better use of public resources.’

All vacancies are now available at this site.
