SEREMBAN: Disabled Malaysians seeking employment in the public sector should apply online with the Public Service Commission (PSC), to expedite the Government's objective of reserving at least one percent of these jobs for them.

Public Service director-general Datuk Seri Abu Bakar Abdullah said the disabled should clearly state their status when applying for these jobs.

"These are among several affirmative measures introduced by the Government to ensure the disabled are considered for jobs in the civil service.

"The PSC must also ensure that all vacancies for jobs advertised online or through any other channel have a special section for the disabled," he said in a circular Monday.

The disabled can apply for jobs in the Top Management group, which makes up the cream of the civil service, Professional and Management, as well as the Support groups.

The disabled, he said, can also seek assistance from the Welfare Department on how to apply for these jobs.

He said to be considered for government jobs, the disabled must have registered with the department.

Although there are an estimated 2.7 million disabled Malaysians, only some 10% are registered with the department.

It is learnt that only the Welfare Department has achieved the Government's one percent target.
