KUWAIT CITY, May 18: Informed sources in the Ministry of Public Works revealed that the Personnel Affairs Committee intends to conduct interviews for supervisory jobs next week, for those who passed the written test recently, reports Al-Qabas daily. The sources said that the committee aims to fill about 35 vacancies, including 25 department heads and 10 department managers, while an estimated 200 candidates had answered the written test.
The sources stated that the ministry attaches great importance to filling vacancies during the coming period, in response to the observations made by the Audit Bureau in recent years, where it has the concerned institutions for keeping some supervisory positions vacant.
The sources explained that the Bureau had warned that if the establishments continued to keep the posts vacant it would negatively affect the monitoring and auditing processes that are carried out by the supervisors in various sectors of the ministry. The sources pointed out that the step opens the door for young national cadres by pumping new blood into supervisory positions and enables them to assume leadership positions in the future to help them shoulder the responsibility in achieving the state’s ambitious development plan. Meanwhile, some principals exercised their authority to manage affairs in their schools when they allowed teachers to leave early in light of the Education Ministry’s decision to suspend classes on Tuesday due to the strong dust storm that hit the country recently, reports Al-Anba daily quoting sources.
Sources revealed that teachers in most of the educational districts reported for work only half-day, while the principals stayed until the end of the official working hours. Sources said some schools carried out partial cleaning of their buildings due to the persistence of dust and completed the cleaning process on Wednesday. Due to the severe shortage of cleaning workers, the administrations of schools decided to hire domestic workers clean their premises until the end of working hours Wednesday, sources added.
