The leadership of the Civil Service through the Training and Career Development Department in the Human Resource Management Office (HRMO) has on Monday 17th August, 2015 commenced a six day induction training for newly recruited Civil Servants in the Professional and Administrative Cadre at the Civil Service Training College in Freetown.

 

Officially opening the training, Secretary to the Cabinet and Head of the Civil Service said the Civil Service is a highly professional hierarchical institution that demands all the competencies and proficiencies to ensure good governance.

 

Dr. Ernest Surrur advised the newly recruits not to look at the Civil Service as a job but a vocation where in people are called to serve the populace and deliver quality, timely and sustained services to the citizenry. He said if they want to stay and enjoy in the Civil Service, they must stay off government's money and property.

 

"if your intention is to come and make money, then, I will tell you frankly that you are in the wrong place. You better start looking elsewhere" he stressed.

 

Head of the Civil Service assured the trainees that they have earned themselves jobs that will assist them to grow in life if only they are diligent, honest and result-oriented in the discharge of their responsibilities.

 

He said "the Civil Service is the only job that will train staff up to PhD level if they are ambitious. If you go to the Private Sector, they will hire you for who you are and the qualifications you have but if you want to go and improve yourself, they will ask you to reign".

 

Dr. Surrur said Civil Servants have a huge role to play in the governance of the state and so they need training. The

 

Training will cover Structure, Functions, Roles, Codes of Conduct and more.
