The Fijian Elections Office [FEO] is encouraging Fijians to apply for positions as Election Officials for the 2018 General Election, while there is still time.

“We’ve had a positive turn out from all our recruitment centres around the country, but we know there are still many Fijians who are keen to join the FEO, but have not applied,” says Stakeholder Awareness Coordinator, Mr Edwin Nand.

“The message to all interested Fijians is simple, don’t wait until the last minute because we expect a huge influx of applicants at our various centres. It would be wise to come in earlier rather than later,” Mr Nand says.

“At this stage, the Fijian Elections Office is assessing the nationwide exercise to determine where we need to re-focus our efforts – we may decide to conduct targeted recruitment in locations which have higher human resource needs in order to deliver the 2018 General Election.”

The Computer Based Test has also worked well with the FEO’s helpful Recruitment Assistants able to guide applicants through the electronic application process.

For those persons who have applied, we would like to remind you that our recruitment team will contact successful applicants for training, and it is not necessary to seek clarifications repeatedly.

“Next week, we will be open in the Central, Western and Northern Division. For Nadi, Lautoka and Nasinu, we’ve also incorporated the assistance of our media partners, and will be doing live outdoor broadcasts for the next two days to ensure that Fijians are well informed about the recruitment drive,” Mr Nand said.

Our schedules have been designed to meet the needs of Fijians who may not be able to come in and apply between normal working hours.

Details of our opening hours are on the FEO website www.fijielects2018.org.fj/eofficials as well as our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/Fijianelectionsoffice/.
