An unforgettable opportunity for Santomenses who want to pursue a public career, being sure that they will compete in absolute equality of conditions with all participants.
As part of the implementation of Value Added Tax (VAT) in São Tomé and Principe, the Ministry of Finance, Commerce and Blue Economy, through the Administrative and Financial Department (DAF), is organizing the public tender for the recruitment of 25 Technicians Superiors of 3rd class for the Direction of the Taxes for economic year of 2018.
There will be 25 vacancies destined to the candidates with nationality santomense and with superior formation in any area – what matters is the knowledge demonstrated in the tests.
The criterion of approval will be exclusively the result obtained in the knowledge tests and in the writing. Individual merit will be respected. There will be no interviews, no curriculum analysis and no subjective factor in the definition of the approved ones. The top 25 ranked, according to the legislation, will be the contractors and will participate in the training course for the activities of the tax administration.
The registration period should be open from the middle of January of the year 2018; the correct dates will be announced in the “Notice of Competition Opening”, due to be published in early January.
The probable dates for the tests will be between 18 and 19 March (one Saturday and one Sunday). The knowledge tests will have a total of 80 to 100 objective questions and the proof of writing, dealing with some subject of taxation applied to São Tomé and Príncipe, should contain between 20 and 30 lines. Corrections to all tests will always be made “blind”, meaning no broker will know the names of the evaluated candidates.
Objective evidence of general knowledge shall include the following subjects:
a- Portuguese Language, b-Mathematics and Logical-Quantitative Reasoning, c- French or English.
Objective evidence of specific knowledge will be composed of the following disciplines: a- Constitutional Law, b- Tax Law, c- Information Technology, d- General and Advanced Accounting, e-Tax Legislation, f- Audit. The specific topics of each discipline, to facilitate the programming of study of the candidates, will be available soon.
It is obvious that those who begin to study as soon as possible, today still, will have advantages over the others. Almost five months of preparation are available. It sounds like a lot, but it’s not, because the content is extensive. On the other hand, this content is accessible to those who devote themselves to learning, regardless of their area of formation. One has to program well, and study intensively to have chances of being approved. It is an unmissable opportunity for people from São Paulo who want to pursue a public career, being sure that they will compete in absolute equality of conditions with all participants.
This absolutely transparent and objective recruitment model, in addition to allowing the most prepared to be approved, also allows greater use and agility during the course of theoretical and practical training. Those approved (and already hired) will have a knowledge base developed during these almost five months of preparation for the competition and consequently will be able to perform their duties more quickly in the Tax Office.
All the information required for the candidates, including a link to the contest website, will be widely disseminated soon, in about a week, including through Sao Tome and Principe embassies. Candidates may also register via e-mail to be disclosed in a timely manner.
Start preparing immediately. There is a vacancy waiting for you that wants to work in a professional, honest and committed way with the future of São Tomé and Príncipe.
The tender process, with the support of the IMF, the World Bank and, of course, the Government of the Democratic Republic of São Tomé and Príncipe, will be governed by transparency in all its stages and will obey those established in Law 05/97.
