How To Find Job Vacancies in Philippine Government Agencies

As illustrated above, you can find job vacancies at a specific government agency through their respective career pages. If you don’t have a specific agency in mind though, you might want to try out the other methods below:

1. CSC’s Aggregate Job Vacancies Database

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) maintains a combined list of job vacancies across government units on its website. It’s easy to find a vacancy that fits you by using the website’s filters to narrow your search.

  • Search by Position shows job vacancies for the search term you have entered. For example, you can search for “teacher,” and it will show all the vacancies available for teacher jobs. 
  • Filter by Agency Name shows only the job vacancies for the specific agency or government unit. If you have a specific agency that you want to work for, then use this filter. 
  • Filter by Region shows only the job vacancies for the location you have chosen. If you only want to work in a specific location, use this filter. 

Note that the CSC is not responsible for entertaining your application. You still have to apply directly to the hiring government agency for the position you are interested in. 

2. Job Websites

The Philippine government also partners with job portals such as Jobstreet.ph in looking for employment candidates. You can simply use the search term “government” on the job website’s platform to look for job openings. 

3. Social Media

If you are not actively seeking a job in government just yet but want to be notified of opportunities, then social media might be for you. You can simply follow social media pages that publish updates for new available job positions.

However, be very careful about applying for government jobs through non-official channels. A legit job posting usually has a link to the official career page of the hiring government agency. 

4. Job Fairs

Keep on the lookout for job fairs from the Philippine government. For instance, the Civil Service Commission, in partnership with Jobstreet.ph, hosted an online job fair last September 20-24, 202127. More than 2,580 vacancies were opened across over 119 government agencies. 

 

What You Need To Know About Job Postings for Philippine Government Agencies

For first-time applicants to government positions, there may be terms in the job postings that are unfamiliar. Here’s what you need to know about them: 

1. Type of Government Position Status

When applying for a government job, make sure you know what position status it is since it indicates the employment conditions (i.e., the duration, benefits, and nature of work). There are currently 6 types: regular/plantilla, casual, coterminous, contractual, job order, and consultancy/contract of services. Learn everything you need to know about them through our guide here

2. Salary/Job/Pay Grade

Philippine government job postings indicate the salary level for the position using a number, from 1 to 33, called the salary grade. It is also an indication of the difficulty of the job – the higher the number, the more responsibilities required. Check the minimum monthly salary equivalent of the job you’re applying for in our updated salary grade guide

3. Civil Service Eligibility

Except for special cases, most Filipinos need to pass the civil service exam to be eligible for a regular job in the government. Note that jobs classified under casual, coterminous, or contractual employment status don’t need civil service eligibility. If you are set on getting a job as a regular government employee, prepare by reading our civil service exam reviewer.  

 

Tips and Warnings

  • Found a government job you are interested in? You can learn everything you need to know about how to apply for government jobs in the Philippines in our step-by-step guide. You should know that you need to prepare a separate set of documents for each position you are applying for. 
  • Don’t leave your other job just yet. Expect a long hiring process that might take two to six months. The government follows a strict protocol that involves many steps. As an example, check out this hiring process flowchart from the DOTC. 
  • Not sure which agency is the best fit for you? Before you begin applying, ask the people you know working in the government about what you can expect as a civil servant. If you don’t know anyone, you can go to online forums to ask about the specific agency you want to work for. 
  • Increase your chances of getting hired by doing your research on the agency you want to join. Then, customize your resume and cover letter according to the specifics of the job. Don’t forget to list down common questions you might be asked in the job interview and then practice your answers for them. 
 

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I get a job in the Philippine government without civil service eligibility?

Yes, jobs classified under coterminous, contractual, or casual employment status do not require civil service eligibility28. For other employment status types, civil service eligibility is required.

The civil service exam is not the only way to get civil service eligibility. Under special laws29, individuals who fall under 11 different categories are granted civil service eligibility by the CSC even without taking the exam. These are:

  • Bar/Board Eligibility (RA1080) 
  • Barangay Health Worker Eligibility (RA7883) 
  • Barangay Nutrition Scholar Eligibility (PD1569) 
  • Barangay Official Eligibility (RA 7160)

  • Skills Eligibility – Category II (CSC MC 11, s. 1996, as Amended) 
  • Veteran Preference Rating (EO 132/790)

You can check out our guide for more details on these exemptions. 

2. Is it easy to get a job in the Philippine government?

Getting a job in the Philippine government is a long process that may take anywhere from 2 to 6 months. You have to meet the job’s qualifications such as education level, work experience, and civil service eligibility. It takes a lot of preparation, but there are many advantages, like job security and pension benefits, that make the effort worth your time. 

3. What jobs are the most in-demand in Philippine government agencies?

You will know if a job is in demand if there are a lot of vacancies available in the Civil Service Commission’s database. There are thousands of job postings in the CSC’s database across various professions, from agricultural technologists to information technology officers, and from security guards to administrative aides. Make sure to sort by posting date to see the most recent jobs available. 

4. Which Philippine government jobs pay the most?

The pay for jobs in the Philippine government is standardized which means each position is assigned a salary grade, from 1 to 33. The higher the grade, the higher the minimum monthly salary.  

The highest grades are reserved mostly for elected or appointed officials, such as the president, vice president, senators, and executive secretaries. 

Next, salary grades 9 to 33 are assigned for professional supervisory positions – those in a managerial role. And then, salary grades 8 to 30 are assigned for professional non-supervisory positions – those professionals who practice the arts or sciences.

So, do your research first on which careers can potentially reach a high salary grade if you want a high-paying and secure government job. Also, take note that there is a slow career progression in government. Promotions usually come only when a senior employee leaves. 

5. Are there jobs in the Philippine government available for my region?

To find Philippine government jobs available for your region, simply use the CSC’s database and select the region that you want to work in.

To find a job in the Philippine government specifically for your profession, go to the CSC’s database and use the Position search function. Simply type the position you are looking for in the text box.
