Hi everyone. Im currently in healthcare admin with one of the govt hospital but feel like no progression because dept so small and if the old bird dont go, you also cannot rise. Thinking of whether to take on govt job MX11/12 but like you all mention, mostly contract basis.

Is it wise to give up perm job with no progression and take a govt job on contract basis?

In terms of bonus, I would assume healthcare pays more given covid19 situation. But then long term wise, no/slow progression also quite crappy.

I would say go for it.. I'm in healthcare industry too (allied health). I don't think healthcare pays more bonus (at least my bonuses pre and post covid remains about the same) , I would think civil service still pays more, they have higher PB and AVC (I don't think hospital pays this), salary increment also seems higher (ours only $100 plus yearly increment, so pathetic!).

There is also not much incentive to jump ship to other hospitals as HR practise this policy of no pay increment if jumping ship from one hospital to another. So the only way for us healthcare workers to get a higher pay is to get out of the industry or go private hospitals (but not necessary the case of higher salary, it depends).

At what point can I discuss with HR on the contract/permanent offer details? Was contacted recently and scheduled for an interview soon, applied a month back. It's a statboard.

you should ask as a contract job wont become a perm one. so dont waste your time if you are expecting otherwise

Does applying for MHA take a longer time than other ministries? I got shortlisted for a non-security role at MHA. They emailed me for a first interview to ask for my available time slots, but itís been a week and they havenít gotten back to me yet.
