Hiring in the public sector gains momentum, as retirements decline PSC says

Cyprus public sector growth has gained pace in 2015 as the hiring of employees increased in contrast to the declining number of retirements, the Public Service Commission said in its annual report.

Public Service Commission, which is charged with monitoring of the hiring and promotions in Cyprus public service, said in its 2015 report that the previous year saw the opening of job positions that have been frozen since the 2013 financial crisis gradually bringing the situation in a correct path as far as the public sector needs are concerned.

A Euros 10 billion financial assistance package Cyprus concluded with its creditors, the EU and the IMF, in 2013, provided that all hirings, promotions and salary increases in the public sector would freeze until the expiry of the three-year bailout.
