KAMPALA – Reference is made to a Bank of Uganda (BoU) internal memo titled Internal Advertisements for Positions of Executive Directors and Directors dated April 24, 2020 which has been published in various media outlets. The memo is an invitation for current Bank of Uganda staff who meet the stipulated requirements for the seven advertised positions.
Among the seven advertised positions, one position has fallen vacant, four positions will fall vacant between May and October 2020 as the current office holders are set to retire, and two positions were occupied by staff that have since been seconded to other organisations. These positions include; Executive Director Information Technology, Executive Director Operations, Director Non-Bank Financial Institutions, Director Medical, Director Human Resources, Director Financial Stability and Director Financial Markets.
The positions are being advertised internally in line with the BoU’s Human Resource Recruitment and Development Plan which provides for internal career growth and development opportunities for staff. BoU, however, advertises for external recruits when the required skills are not available internally.
BoU wishes to reassure the public of the integrity and transparency of its recruitment processes and its commitment to fostering price stability and a sound financial system.
