The Public Service Commission (PSC) has announced over 500 job openings in the civil service, alongside an additional 203 positions advertised by the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC).

In its comprehensive advertisement released on Tuesday, May 14, PSC unveiled a diverse array of job opportunities aimed at addressing critical needs across various sectors.

Among the highlights of the announcement are 105 vacancies for Occupational Safety and Health Officers, eight positions for Medical Officers, and 10 openings for Nursing Officers II. Notably, the government is actively seeking to recruit six pharmacists.

Under the thematic banner of Environment and Climate Change, the PSC has taken significant steps to address pressing environmental concerns by announcing three openings for Assistant Directors of Meteorological Services. Moreover, the commission is seeking to hire the Director of the Meteorological Services Training Institute and Research, along with 39 vacancies for meteorologists.

This move comes amidst growing criticism of the country’s understaffed and underfunded Kenya Meteorological Department, highlighting the urgent need for expertise in weather forecasting and environmental monitoring.

In addition to these roles, the PSC has advertised key positions within the realm of environmental policy and regulation. These include openings for Directors and Deputy Directors across various portfolios.

Beyond the environmental sector, the PSC’s advertisement also encompasses 19 positions in cooperatives. Additionally, the commission has earmarked 27 roles in medical services, aiming to address staffing shortages and improve healthcare delivery across the country.
