Up to 85 percent of eligible candidates that possess more than two years grassroots work experience will be recruited in the central authority and directly-governed institutions in the upcoming annual civil servants recruitment examinations of this year, according to the authorities recently.

A senior official from the State Administration of Civil Service revealed that the upcoming 2011 examination and recruitment work will be reformed in three aspects.

In 2011, the proportion of newly-recruited civil servants that possess more than two years of grassroots work experience will be increased from 70 percent last year to as high as 85 percent in central authority and directly-governed institutions at provincial civil and some conditional departments can select all candidates from grassroots staff.

According to newly-applied regulations, grassroots project personnel, including students and village officials, are eligible to apply for fixed and other posts, instead of just being awarded points in the exam.

At the same time, some departments are going to start pilot programs for new select measures in recruiting civil servants from the village and community cadres, outstanding workers and farmers.

The official said that a standardized, scientific, fair and impartial civil service recruitment examination will select batches of outstanding talents.

It was reported that an information database of discipline violations will be established on the national network during the exam to resolutely put an end to any cheating incidents.
