Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo Nograles is confident that granting Career Service Eligibility – Preference Rating (CSE-PR) to specific government workers will increase the number of civil service eligibles and provide new opportunities to join public service.

“They always say that the government is the biggest employer whether nationally or locally. We hope that with this new issuance, we can get more eligibles, especially those na tina-target natin, the JOCOSC6,” he said during the CSC press conference at the Philippine Information Agency.

“We’re very positive that this policy will have an impact in getting more civil service eligibles into the pool, and getting them to fill up vacant positions in the government,” Chairperson Nograles added.

JOCOSC6 is the collective term for specific groups of workers in government agencies, encompassing job order (JO), contract of service (COS), casual, contractual, coterminous, employees holding Category III and Category IV positions, as enumerated in CSC Memorandum Circular No. 10 dated 16 April 2013, and career service employees with first level eligibility.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) warned the public about unscrupulous parties pretending to be officials and employees of the institution, soliciting favors, and disseminating false information.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles advised stakeholders to be wary of messages, emails, or phone calls from individuals posing as CSC employees requesting for sensitive information or documents.

May mga natanggap kaming reports na may nagpapanggap na mga kawani ng CSC upang makahingi ng impormasyon, pera, o pabor mula sa mga ahensya ng pamahalaan at maging sa publiko. We are reminding the public to be vigilant by directly verifying the authenticity of the transaction from the CSC Regional or Field Office concerned,” said Chairperson Nograles.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) has announced the list of top scorers in the Career Service Examination - Pen and Paper Test (CSE-PPT), both Professional and Subprofessional levels, held on 3 March 2024.

A total of 57,683 individuals, or 17.20 percent, passed the exam. Of the 297,952 candidates who took the CSE Professional level, 51,311 passed, resulting in a pass rate of 17.22 percent. Additionally, 6,372 out of 37,433 individuals passed the Subprofessional level, achieving a pass rate of 17.02 percent.

"Congratulations once again to all who passed, and a special commendation to the top performers. Your hard work has paid off, bringing you one step closer to joining the ranks of our 1.9 million dedicated civil servants nationwide,” CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles told the successful examinees.

Civil Service Commission (CSC) Chairperson Karlo Nograles addressed the 1.9 million civil servants in various agencies nationwide as the country celebrates the 126th anniversary of Philippine Independence Day.

Kaisa ng bumubuo ng Komisyon sa Serbisyo Sibil, ang aking mainit na pagbati at pagtawag ng pakikiisa sa ika-126 taong pagdiriwang ng proklamasyon ng kalayaan ng ating bansa,” he said.

“This year’s theme, Kalayaan, Kinabukasan, Kasaysayan, underscores the importance of independence in the achievement of the country’s collective aspiration for the future contained in the Philippine Development Plan—to enjoy a strongly-rooted, comfortable, and secure life,” added Chairperson Nograles in his message.

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) will hold this year’s Leaders & Human Resource Symposium (LHRS) on 24-25 September 2024, both virtually and onsite in Pasay City.

The CSC invites leaders and human resource (HR) practitioners from across the country to participate in this event.

"We invite everyone to be part of this year's hybrid HR convention. This is a great opportunity to connect with industry leaders, share insights, and gain valuable knowledge," said CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles.
