CSC helps gov’t workers obtain civil service eligibility

THE CIVIL Service Commission (CSC) urged government workers anew to apply for the Grant of Career Service Eligibility – Preference Rating (CSE-PR) to obtain necessary civil service eligibility and fill vacant positions in the government.

“In recognition of these government workers who have already contributed so much in our efforts to provide efficient public service, the CSC has resolved to grant them with CSE (Career Service Examinations) preference rating under specific conditions,” said CSC Chairperson Karlo Alexei B. Nograles in a press briefing on Monday.

Qualified workers of at least 10 years under Job Order (JO), Contract of Service (COS), Casual, Contractual, Coterminous, employees holding Category III and Category IV (JOCOSC6) positions are eligible to take the CSE-PR.

The applicant must have a performance rating of at least Very Satisfactory or equivalent in the two most recent rating periods before the application date.

A maximum of 10 points of Preference Rating will be added to the failed general rating of 70-79.99 of qualified applicants to reach the passing 80% rate.

An applicant is only allowed to use the grant once.

The application deadline for the August 2024 Pen and Paper Test for both the Professional and Subprofessional Levels is June 13, 2024.

More than 90 testing centers across 16 regions are available to accommodate applicants.

As of 2023, there are 204,054 vacancies in government agencies nationwide.

Vacancies in career items reached 200,889, while available non-career posts reached 3,165 last year.

As the jobless rate in the Philippines spiked to a three-month high in April, Mr. Nograles said they are “positive” the policy will impact the country’s labor force.

“We’re very positive that this will have an impact in getting more, number one, civil service eligibles into the [force], and number two, getting them to fill up the current vacant positions,” Mr. Nograles said.
