Nurses dominate list of Ministry of Health workers to be recruited

Registered Nurses will be the largest group of health workers that will employed in the last Ministry of Health recruitment exercise.

On Friday, the Civil Service Commission published details of the number of slots, duty stations, and qualifications needed to fill up the 11,270 positions in the Ministry of Health.

With 3,260 slots, Registered Nurses form the bulk of the recruits to be engaged by the Ministry of Health out of 11,270.

510 Junior Resident Medical Officers will be recruited from a back long of over 800 leaving about 290 trained doctors without jobs.

There will be 214 Cleaners, 148 General Workers and 44 Mortuary Attendants to be recruited.

147 Drivers will be added to the MoH Payroll.

And the Resident Doctors Association of Zambia says it will engage the Ministry of Health to ensure that doctors who will not be employed during the recruitment exercise are given an opportunity to do their two-year internship without any hurdles.

Association President Dr Brian Sampa says the 510 spaces allocated for medical doctors is a good number given that government is also employing other cadres of health personnel.

Dr Sampa is happy that government has allocated more than 80 per cent out of the 800 unemployed doctors.

Yesterday, the Ministry of Health through the Civil Service Commission released the advert for the recruitment of the 11,276 health workers in both the Times of Zambia and Zambia Daily Mail Newspapers.

The advert which will run up to April 1st, 2022 has vacancies for Biomedical Scientists, Clinical Officers both General and Psychiatry, Community Health Assistants, Data Entry Clerk, Environmental Health Technologists and Junior Resident Medical Officers interns.

Others include Dental Assistants, Dental Surgeon Intern, Dental Technologists, Dental Therapists, Medical Equipment Technologists, Medical Laboratory Technologists, Medical Licentiates, Medical Records Clerk, Nutrition Technologists, Nutritionists and Pharmacists.

The recruitment will benefit all the 116 districts countrywide and candidates are therefore advised to only apply to one District or Province.

President Hakainde Hichilema when he visited the Ministry of Health, emphasised that Government jobs are for everyone and advised the Civil Service Commission and the Ministry of Health not to employ only those related to the Permanent Secretary, the Minister, and Secretary to Cabinet or the President.
