Although the unemployment rate in Kenya is stuck at 12.7%, and hiring in the private sector has remained moribund due to the challenging economic times coupled with harsh taxing policies, the national government has announced hundreds of jobs open now through the Public Service Commission (PSC).

In an advert announcing the job openings in the public service posted by PSC this January 2024, the government will hire 675 people to fill the vacant positions across some of its state departments and ministries, many of whom will join the State Department for Immigration and Citizen Services and that of Mining which has over 80 spots.

There is an incredible range of jobs from director and commissioner roles and secretaries to professions like geologists and lab technologists, and you just may be the ideal candidate to fill these slots because the government is known to provide relatively secure employment with robust bonus schemes, health insurance, and retirement benefits and you are encouraged to apply.
