Civil servants given 20 days to choose new positions

Almost 1,900 civil servants that were placed in a mobility scheme were on Thursday given 20 days to choose another position.

A total of 1,891 public sector workers were put in the program.

They have 2,423 places to pick from, the Administrative Reform Ministry said.

The departments to which they want to move will evaluate their skills before deciding on whether to approve the transfer.

The scheme has been agreed between the government and the troika, with the aim of 25,000 civil servants being inducted in the program by the end of the year.

They will have 12 months to find another position in the public sector or have to look for employment in the private sector.
