800 for corrections recruitment

Maciu Malo
Monday, December 10, 2012

MORE than 800 people gathered at the Lautoka Corrections Centre office in Natabua over the weekend for an interview to recruit new officers.

Western Corrections Service Supervisor Assistant Superintendent Oliver Fisher said he was amazed to see the number of people that attended the interview and fitness test.

He said out of the 800 people that attended the interview and the fitness test, the Western Corrections Service needed 15 to 20 more officers for next year.

"We never expected to have all these applicants during the interview and this shows the interests shown by people to have jobs," he said. "We need 15 to 20 new officers in the west to meet the demand required by the service.

"The number of inmates are increasing therefore we need manpower to cater for this increasing demand.

"All interviewees also underwent fitness tests and the best will be selected."

ASP Fisher said interviews and fitness tests were also conducted in other parts of the country to select a total of 105 new officers needed at the centre next year. He said a team from Suva conducted interviews and fitness tests and that they would select the final candidates.
