Health sector to get 5,000 staff soon

The Directorate General of Health Services is going to recruit some 5000 3rd and 4th class employees for different health institutions across the country very soon.

An advertisement to this end was published to recruit 1000 staff under 19 categories in the five districts of Gazipur, Borguna, Patuakhali, Madaripur and Natore.

Another advertisement for recruitment of 1500 health staff in nine districts is expected within this week.

Moreover, the Health and Family Welfare Ministry will soon grant permission to recruit another 2554 people for the posts of health assistants.

According to the new recruitment rule, all 4th class employees including sweepers and morgue assistants have to sit for a test which contains 70 marks in its written assessment and 30 for the viva-voce.

In 1985, the government recruitment rule for the 4th class employees was that they had to face an 80-mark written test and 20-mark viva-voce.

 The new recruitment rule has been implemented from 5th may.

Dr Md Shahnewaz, director (administration) of Directorate General Health Service (DGHS) told the Dhaka Tribune it is true that recruitment for the vacant posts are going to take place very soon.

It is alleged that DGHS delayed to hold a 20-mark viva-voce for another 915 posts of 3rd and 4th class employees under 28 categories in nine districts.

The written examination for those posts was held on April 26 and the result was published on June 23.

“The viva-voce of the 2745 candidates vying for the 915 vacant posts is going to begin next week,” said the director who is also a member secretary of central recruitment committee.

A four-member committee headed by divisional director and civil surgeon as member secretary will hold the viva-voce.

The health directorate high-ups said they planned to hold the viva-voce as soon as the written result was published, but it was not possible as four of the five divisional directors were not present.
