Candidates for the job of principal secretaries are encouraged to submit their applications by September 20 to the Public Service Commission (PSC).
The PSC is required by Article 155(3)(a) of the Constitution to recommend candidates to the President for nomination and appointment as Principal Secretaries.
The current Principal Secretaries will have to apply, PSC chairman Anthony Muchiri stated in a statement posted on Tuesday.
The statement reads, “Women, minorities, the marginalized, and those living with disability are urged to apply.”
The Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB), and the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission are expected to grant the applicants’ requests (EACC).
Additionally, they must possess a registered credit card and a certificate of good conduct issued by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI).
The qualified applicants must have a degree from a Kenyan institution and at least ten years of relevant professional experience, five of which must have been in a management or leadership role in the public or private sector.
Additionally, they must adhere to the standards of integrity and leadership outlined in Chapter Six of the Constitution.
According to PSC, they should have a basic understanding of the structure and operations of government.
The National Identity Card or Passport, copies of pertinent academic and professional diplomas and transcripts, recommendations, and any other pertinent supporting documentation are required to be submitted with every application, according to the Commission.
The statement continued, “Scan copies of these documents must be submitted with an online application.”
