“There are two types of formations available for 2019 Civil Servant Recruitment, namely general formation and special formation,” Bima said during a press conference in East Kalimantan, Monday (28/10).
The special formation, he added, is available for cum laude graduates, diaspora, persons with disability (for Central and Regional Agencies), as well as special formations for the people of Papua (for Central Agency). The positions available are on education and health sectors, lecturer, functional position, and technical positions.
Bima went on to say that the top three formations available are teachers (63,324 formations), health workers (31,756 formations), and functional technicians (23,660 formations).
“This year the Government would not provide formation for administrative staff. At present the Government is focusing on opening positions that can contribute to change,” Bima explained.
He reminded the prospective candidates to prepare documents to be uploaded to the SSCASN portal, including scans of original ID cards, photos, selfie photo, diplomas and original transcripts, as well as several other supporting documents required by the agency.
Bima asked the applicants to read and understand all the registration conditions in the SSCASN portal. If the applicant finds any difficulty, the applicant can read the information in the Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) that provides answers to general problems. The BKN also provides an online helpdesk channel in the portal.
Bima further said that starting on 11 November 2019, the BKN would provide an offline helpdesk service at the BKN Head Office, Mayjend Sutoyo Street Number 12 East Jakarta, as well as at the BKN Regional Offices. The offline helpdesk will provide solution if the applicant’s problems are not resolved through an online FAQ and helpdesk.
“The Applicants are expected to prepare documents properly and only upload documents in accordance with the requirements of the formation,” Bima concluded.
