The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in Central Visayas needs 103 more staff on board by first week of October for its community-driven poverty reduction program known as Kapit-Bisig Laban sa Kahirapan-Integrated and Delivery of Social Services (Kalahi-CIDSS).

Kalahi-CIDSS has recently been scaled up this year and made into a national program coined as the National Community Driven-Development Program (NCDDP), which would cover more than 900 poor municipalities and cater roughly 5.9 million households across the country.

In Central Visayas alone, there will be 104 additional municipalities in the provinces of Bohol, Negros Oriental, Siquijor and Cebu.

“Kalahi-CIDSS has scaled up and is not just a project of DSWD anymore. This is now a national program implemented by the different national government agencies covering over a 100 municipalities in the region starting this year 2013 to 2019, which is why we need more manpower to implement this huge scale,” said Simeon Remata III, regional social marketing officer for Kalahi-CIDSS.

Beginning this week until the month of August, the social welfare agency will be accepting applicants for the following positions: one deputy regional project manager, one regional community development specialist, 70 area coordinators, one regional community infrastructure specialist, three monitoring and evaluation officer III, one monitoring and evaluation officer II, one regional financial analyst and two regional infrastructure officer.

Interested applicants are requested to bring their comprehensive resume, letter of application addressed to the DSWD Regional Director, transcript of record, certificates and other credentials.

Graduates of Social Development courses or those who have relevant experience working in community organizing and development work are encouraged to apply.

For a complete list of vacancies and other inquiries, please visit the Human Resource Development Section of the DSWD-7 on M.J. Cuenco corner Gen. Maxilom Avenue, Cebu City or call regional project coordinator Daisy Lor at 2329505.
