On December 21, 2015, the Bureau of Local Government Finance (BLGF) signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Kalibrr, a job-matching online platform for job seekers and companies, to democratize hiring by widening the recruitment net and marketing reach online.
Together with the Department of Education, the Department of Transportation and Communication, the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the Public-Private Partnership Center, and the Bagumbayani Initiative, a movement initiated by a group of young civil servants promoting positive change and integrity in the government by sustainably recruiting young people into the civil service, this partnership aims to further enhance the hiring process of qualified personnel who will exemplify BLGF’s goal of instilling a culture of excellence, competence, professionalism and dedication to public service and in the service of the local governments.
“All development is local. Good local finance practices are at the core of the development of the people in the margins. Since our rationalization plan was approved early this year, we have been on the lookout for the best talent in the country to join our local finance reform team. We are even opening up our third level vacancies so there is a truly merit-based selection process in government. We invite everyone to consider applying for BLGF as we strive to create a professional local finance system for LGUs across the country,” BLGF OIC Executive Director Jocelyn Pendon said.
In line with BLGF’s rationalization plan, which was implemented earlier this year, 103 first and second level job vacancies, along with 13 third level positions, for both the central and regional offices will be posted at www.kalibrr.com for hiring in 2016.
