– 18 October 2016:
A new batch of 150 recruits in the grade of Management Support Officer (MSO) joined the Civil Service yesterday. The Minister of Civil Service and Administrative Reforms, and Minister of Environment and Sustainable Development, and Disaster and Beach Management, Mr Alain Wong, welcomed them at the Sir Harilal Vaghjee Hall, Port Louis.
In his address, the Minister invited the new recruits to dedicate themselves to serve the citizens of this country, regardless of their status and posting. Since 2015, 480 MSOs have already been recruited to cater for the organisational needs of Ministries/ Departments across the Civil Service.
This present batch of MSO is yet another recruitment exercise being made to further strengthen our Civil Service as we firmly believe that the civil service plays a major role in sustaining governance and in facilitating implementation and execution of government programmes, he said, adding that despite all constraints, the civil service in Mauritius is sustaining recruitments in different grades.
The post of MSO, underlined Mr Wong, is the entry point in a sector which provides with vistas of opportunities and as public officers, you are here to serve the nation. In the respective Departments or Ministries where you will be working, you will have to integrate work groups and teams, adapt to the culture of the organsation and provide the best services to your customers whether they are people from the same Ministry or the public at large who will call at your desk, he said.
After confirmation and on completion of a few years of service, the new recruits will have the opportunity to compete for the post of Office Management Assistant and for specialised functional areas such as Purchasing and Supply, Finance, Human Resource, General Administration. They may even choose to compete for technical positions such as Labour Inspector, Family Welfare and Protection Officer, Social Security Officer, Statistical Officer, Court Officer, just to mention a few.
