Are your friends in Ministry or stat board? It is the norm nowadays to offer a "perm" 1 year contract. Under this contract, you will receive the same perks and benefit as with perm staff, with the exception for civil service wide initiatives (i.e. salary adjustment across the board). At the end of the 1 year, base on your performance, you will either be converted to perm, or subject to renewal of contract (if they are not so sure about you yet).

I think it may vary across the agencies. But some do give pro-rated PB, depending on when is their appraisal window for the year.

Rarely do they employ private candidates into these positions unless you are really a 100% match to what they are looking for and there is no one in line for the position.

He said those adv online for DD and above position are for those within the CS/PS to apply. Outsiders totally no case. He asked me to give up hope.

Any truth in what my friend said?

I don't agree that DDs and above in the civil service and stat boards are usually scholars. I've seen quite a number who are not. But I do observe that the ministries and stat boards tend to groom their people and so may have less need to parachute in people from outside for senior positions.

Are LT-Col, full Cols from the military considered as 'outside'? Look at the local universities and poly, you will see a fair bit of them parachute in as Deputy Directors or Directors at least upon their early retirement from the military, after collecting their golden handshake. lucky bunch of people, from high pay, jump to another high pay.

They are somewhere in between. Depends on how they got their jobs. Anyway, universities are not stat boards anymore.
