Over 17,900 permanent recruitments in the State for 2023


The 15,641 recruitments fall under the 1:1 rule, of which 3,155 are for the Ministry of National Defence, 2,265 in municipalities, 1,357 in the Ministry of Health and 1,230 in the Ministry of Justice

At 17,942 amount to permanent recruitment in the State in 2023 which was approved today by the cabinet and then presented to the media by the Minister of the Interior Makis Voridis.

Of these, 15,641 recruitments fall under the 1:1 rule (one recruitment for every one departure), of which 3,155 for the Ministry of National Defense (including 1,700 EPOP), 2,265 in municipalities (the 1,000 in the municipal police), 1,357 in the Ministry of Health and 1,230 in the Ministry of Justice. 23,818 positions were approved for 2022, 12,600 for 2021 and 6,075 for 2020.

Of the positions that do not fall under the above rule (a total of 2,301), 1,367 are for local government remunerative services.

They were also approved 22,344 IDOH positions (private law fixed-term), a number that is reduced by 12% compared to last year, (based on a relevant legislative commitment), as well as 2,658 seasonal staff positions. Of the IDOCH staff, the lion’s share (7,259 positions) are reserved for the Ministry of the Interior for cleaners.

It should be noted that the number of pending recruitments from previous years reaches 33,602, which is attributed to the time-consuming procedures of the relevant procedures. This phenomenon, according to Mr. Voridis, will be eliminated thanks to ASEP’s large written competition, which, according to him, will finally be implemented in March 2023 instead of this year, in order to include not only the unimplemented recruitments of the educational categories PE and TE of 2022, but also of 2023. As he explained, the competition will create a “reservoir” of successful candidates, from which the agencies will draw the staff they apply for immediately after the approval of the relevant announcement, without requiring today’s process.

The results are expected to be issued in two months and the successful candidates will start work around September and October of the same year. “For the first time in the annals of the operation of the State, the successful candidates will be in their positions in the same year that the recruitments were approved by the cabinet,” the minister emphasized.

Almost one in two positions of approved permanent hires next year require a university or technical degree. More specifically, 5,495 positions (31% of the total) are of the PE (university education) category, 2,888 (16%) of the TE (technological education) category, 4,881 (27%) of the DE (secondary education) category, 735 (4%) HR category (compulsory education), while the remaining positions are for special categories. Most DE positions are reserved for the productive schools (military, police, fire brigade, coastguard), whose students will join the PE category upon graduation.
