EAST AFRICAN COMMUNITY
STATEMENT ON THE STATUS OF THE ONGOING EAC RECRUITMENT PROCESS
East African Community Headquarters, 19th October, 2021: The 42nd Extra-Ordinary Meeting of the East African Community (EAC) Council of Ministers held in May 2021, approved the filling of the vacant positions in the EAC Organs and Institutions through competitive recruitment.
In compliance with the directive of the 42nd Extra-Ordinary Council Meeting, on 19th May, 2021, the EAC Secretariat initiated the recruitment process by advertising the vacant positions. More than 15,000 applications were received from all the six (6) EAC Partner States. All EAC Partner States’ delegates profiled/sorted and subsequently shortlisted candidates.
Following successful profiling and shortlisting, the interviews were set to commence from 18th October to 2nd November, 2021. The Secretariat made all the arrangements for the shortlisted candidates to participate in the interviews through the video conferencing facilities at the Ministries of EAC Affairs in the Partner States.
The interviews could not commence as scheduled due to quorum. The interviews have therefore been postponed to a later date that will be communicated accordingly.
The EAC is committed to providing an equal opportunity for all East Africans.
