UoM’s Recruitment Process Under Fire



UoM's Recruitment Process Under Fire

The University of Mauritius (UoM) has launched an investigation into the recruitment of an Associate Professor, following concerns raised by members of the university’s administration council during a recent meeting.

The concerns stem from the non-compliance with the recommendations of the former Independent Commission Against Corruption (Icac) regarding the recruitment process.

According to Defi Media’s sources, the Icac had recommended that all applications for promotions and recruitments be submitted online to ensure transparency and traceability.

However, it appeared that the candidates for the Associate Professor position were submitted in paper form, contradicting these recommendations.

The individual promoted to the position is not being targeted by the investigation. Instead, questions are being raised about the responsibility of those who authorized this process despite the Icac’s recommendations.

According to Defi Media’s source within the UoM revealed that a request for exemption had been made to allow candidates to submit their applications in paper form during a recent recruitment exercise for General Field Workers. However, this request was rejected. This source is now questioning why this standard was not applied strictly in the case of the Associate Professor position.

The investigation into the recruitment process is ongoing, and it remains to be seen what consequences will be meted out to those responsible for the non-compliance with the Icac’s recommendations.
