MORE than 300 vacant plantilla positions in the City Government are still open for applicants, chief of the Human Resource and Management Office (HRMO) of the City Hall said.
HRMO chief Erwin Alparaque said those positions remained vacant for several months already.
He said the City Hall should meet its total work force of 2,831 positions, but as of Thursday only 2,520 plantilla positions are so far been filled up.
Apart from the plantilla position, the city also has a total of 8,468 job order positions.
"Daghan man ug interesado sa mga position, wala lang jud mag qualify (There were lots of interested applicants to various positions, but only few possess the qualification)," Alparque said.
He said the vacant positions include those employees who have already resigned, retire or those who have been promoted.
He said these positions are from all 19 departments and units under the City Hall that provides vital services to the public.
Alparaque said he is hoping that these posts will be filled up soon for the city to maximize its services and programs implementation to its constituents.
