JUBA, 19 March 2019 (Gurtong) -The Ministry of Labour, Public Service and Human Resource Development, together with the Non-government Organizations (NGOs) Forum on Tuesday yesterday launched guidelines for recruitment of staffs for NGOs.
 
Officials from all the 32 state ministries of labour and Abyei Administration Area as well as representatives from NGOs attended the launch in Juba.
The document is expected to streamline the NGOs’ recruitment procedures and address complaints from locals about recruitments by the NGOs.
 
Last year, aid workers were briefly evacuated from Maban following violent protests by local youths regarding what they called unfavorable recruitment policies for locals by NGOs operating in that area.
 
The document, developed to collaborate with the 2017 Labour Act, outlines principles for recruitment for NGOs, stages and NGOs commitment to recruitment as well as commitment of government authorities to recruitments.
 
Speaking to reporters after the launch of the document yesterday, the Director of NGOs Forum Dr. Pius Ojara said the document will solve previous challenges NGOs faced in recruiting staffs.
He said the guidelines will resolve the issues of inconsistency in in the way NGOs recruit staffs.
 
“We recognized inconsistency in the way NGOs’ staffs were being recruited. Practices were not the same. There was need to have a document that articulates ways by which NGOs bring in their new work forces,” Dr. Ojara said.
 
“It is very clear and very explicit. It articulates key stages and key requirements and steps that need to be taken in recruitment of NGOs staffs,” he added.
 
Undersecretary of Laour in the National Ministry of Labour, Public Service and Human Resource Development, Mary Hilary Wani Pitia said the guideline will ensure noninterference by government officials in recruitments of NGO staffs.
 
“The labour authorities or South Sedan Rehabilitation and Relief Commission or the government interfere with NGOs recruitment processes. The NGOs will recruit based on the guidelines without interference,” she said.
 
She added that the government will ensure its commitment to the implementation of the guidelines and the 2017 Labour Act to reduce recruitment challenges in the country.
