dc.description.abstract The main aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of employee recruitment procedures in the headquarters of the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture (MEAC) in Namibia. The study made use of the qualitative method of research by identifying a single case study and distributing questionnaires to be completed by the selected respondents. The results of the data analysis revealed that MEAC follows the recruitment procedures as prescribed by the PSM Circular 23 of 2001. It was also found that the recruitment policy is not the only document that guides the recruitment of employees in MEAC. The ministry is also guided by the Affirmative Action Act, Public Service Staff Rules, the Ministerial Affirmative Action Report and the Labour Act. Recommendations are sent to the Public Service Commission in order to verify whether appointments were procedurally fair and whether exceptions are warranted. The study concluded that the recruitment procedure at MEAC is effective, and in line with the legal provision, but that there are potential loopholes in the system that can compromise the recruitment process. The study further recommends that the potential that allows the officials to deviate from the recruitment policy in certain instances, be regulated and monitored. en_US
