THE Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (Barmm) has launched a job portal providing jobseekers the opportunity to submit their resume and seek employment on line.
Barmm Chief Minister Ahod Al Haj Murad Ebrahim led the launching of the job portal during the 30th Cabinet Meeting on Monday, December 23, together with Barmm Executive Secretary Abdulraof Macacua in Cotabato City.
The Barmm’s Bureau of Public Information said that the portal can be accessed through the link jobs.bangsamoro.gov.ph.
Ebrahim said the platform was created as part of the Bangsamoro government’s call for moral governance and its policy to strictly implement the merit-based hiring process and credible job placement.
Ebrahim said the job portal is the government’s way to relieve applicants from travelling in order to submit documents to prospect offices, thus giving them less-hassle transactions.
“Applicants do not need to travel and personally submit their applications [because] everything is done through the website,” he added. However, Ebrahim stressed that applicants may still submit their applications, personally.
“The prospective applicants, who do not have access to the internet, may submit their papers for consideration of the ministries and offices of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region.”
He said that a registration on the portal is an initial step before an applicant can access the job postings of the different Barmm ministries. He said that the portal is open only for registration in the meantime while the vacancies shall be posted anytime soon. (SunStar Zamboanga)
