Annual Report 2017 cover

2017 marked the Commission's 13th full year in operation as the regulator of recruitment and
selection in the public service. Since its inception, the Commission has played a central role in
instilling values of fairness and transparency. It has facilitated offices and departments to recruit
high quality employees and in doing so has helped promote confidence in the services they
provide to the public

During this time, the Commission has overseen the fair appointment of staff to a changing
public service. In response to a lifted moratorium and a requirement to resource an expanding
public service, the number of appointments being made has increased. Now more than ever, the
importance of appointing appropriate staff, with the skills and abilities to support a modern and
progressive public service, is to the fore.
