Written Reply to Parliamentary Question on posting of Public Service jobs on National Jobs Bank
Parliamentary Sitting: 11 July 2016

Currently, Public Service agencies have to separately prepare and post up job advertisements on the Careers@Gov portal and Jobs Bank if they wish to advertise the same job on both portals. Notwithstanding this, Public Service agencies have been posting an average of 268 jobs on Job Banks per month, which is about 21% of total public sector jobs advertised.
To make the process more convenient, PSD is working with WDA to build an interface between Careers@Gov portal and Jobs Bank. The interface allows job advertisements on Careers@Gov portal to be easily copied to Jobs Bank. This is expected to be ready by the end of the year.
