ACA requires experts in all fields to fill vacancies



The Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) requires graduates with expertise in various fields to fill vacancies in the department.

Its Deputy Director General II, Datuk Zakaria Jaafar, said the need arose due to corruption becoming an issue of concern and the offenders getting smarter in their operations.

“The offenders are becoming smarter and more elusive. That’s why we need experts in various fields, like forensic accounting, banking and computer engineering, as well as those proficient in English, Chinese and Tamil to fill vacancies in the department,” he told reporters after laying the foundation stone for the Kelantan ACA office complex and quarters here today.

He said there were 500 vacancies in the department to be filled by diploma and degree graduates this year and 900 posts next year.

“Those eligible can apply online through the Public Service Commission website,” he added.
On the Kelantan ACA office complex and quarters, Zakaria said, the project, costing RM26 million, was scheduled for completion in Aug 2010.

Work on the project, on a 1.8 hectare site in Mukim Kenali here, started on Aug 11.
