The Fijian Elections Office (FEO) is now recruiting staff using an online system.

Elections Supervisor Mohammed Saneem said applicants to the posts advertised by the FEO will now be tested and interviewed online.

“We have set up a testing system on the laptops which has their own set of multiple choice questions,” Mr Saneem said.

“The software marks the answers immediately, this method will assist us when we start our recruitment of 10,000 plus staff during the upcoming 2018 general elections,”he said.

Mr Saneem said the only exception is for the high level posts advertised; this will require a face to face interview.

The FEO started with this recruitment exercise earlier this week.

“It has saved us time and manpower since we just need to assess the result and then draft the offer letters on the same day; it is very convenient.”

Meanwhile the FEO also organised a workshop where participants were briefed on the importance of exploring the role of security in planning electoral activities, and the role security played within the election process and post-election.

Mr Saneem said the BRIDGE workshop,   was a part of their ‘Building Resources in Democracy, Governance and Elections’ professional development programme.

“All electoral activities require assessment of threat and risk. But, identifying vulnerabilities and interpreting security assessments and then implementing security risk management systems require quality training that incorporates international best practices.”

Participants included the Fiji Police Force, Fiji Independent Commission against Corruption and FEO.
