The Bangsamoro government will hire only competent and skilled workers in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
Bangsamoro Spokesperson and Local Government Minister Atty. Naguib Sinarimbo said job seekers have to comply with the Qualification Standards (QS) set by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) for specific positions in the regional government.
“We should attract the best. So, rather than bring down the standard, let us instead help our people to get to the standard…we cannot go below the national standards,” he explained.
In the Philippines, he noted that the current recruitment system is based on Competency-Based Recruitment and Qualification Standards (CBRQS), a minimum set of requirements composed of competencies, education, eligibility, training, and experience to assess the candidate’s fitness to a particular job.
Since its launching, there is already an outpour of job seekers in the Bangsamoro Job Portal, with over 160,000 applications for more than a thousand regional government positions being processed by the different ministries and offices of the BARMM to date, Sinarimbo said.
