Public Service Commission To Launch SPA Recruitment System
The Public Service Commission (SPA) will be introducing to the public a new method of applying for government vacancies through the use of an online recruitment service. The SPA Recruitment system is expected to be in operation at the end of February 2015. The official launching and activation of the SPA Recruitment Portal will be announced to the public at a later date.
The web-based platform system promises a convenient online job application experience for applicants by allowing round-the-clock access to its users. Once the SPA Recruitment Portal is activated, the office will no longer accept the present method of manual form submission for job application. The system aims to expedite SPA’s recruitment process and eliminate problems caused by manual delays.
Prior to the launching of the SPA Recruitment system, the public including present civil servants, are encouraged to start registering with e-darussalam to obtain a ‘Username’ and ‘Password’. The same login credentials will be used to sign in to the SPA Recruitment Portal. Once an account with e-darussalam is created, users are required to verify their account in order to complete the registration process with e-darussalam. Verification of e-darussalam accounts can be done by bringing in the account holder’s identification card (IC) to authorised verification centres that are located in all four districts across the country. For more information regarding registration process and location of verification centres, the public is advised to visit
Once the SPA Recruitment Portal is activated, verified e-darussalam account holders will be able to log in and gain access to the portal’s user-friendly interface and contents. After gaining access to the portal, users will be directed to their ‘My Profile’ page where they can enter their details such as their academic qualifications and work experience and upload relevant documents (PDF format) such as applicant’s photo, certificates and driving license for application purposes.
It is compulsary for all job applicants, including civil servants, to submit their applications through the SPA Recruitment Portal once it has become active. All present civil servants are advised to keep their personal data and service record in GEMS updated at all times as all of these information will be extracted from GEMS and automatically uploaded into the civil servant’s own ‘My Profile’ page in the portal. Any incorrect information retrieved from GEMS will cause users to have their applications consequently rejected by the SPA Recruitment system.
For any enquiries on the SPA Recruitment system, e-darussalam and GEMS, the public is advised to contact SPA office at 2381961, GEMS help desk at
or at 2382407, or visit
or SPA’s Facebook fanpage, Pejabat Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Awam.
