FULL LIST: Over 1,200 Accountants Miss Out on School Bursar Jobs on Government Payroll

Nearly 1,200 accountants were unsuccessful according to results from a recently concluded aptitude tests administered to choose the best candidates for school bursar or senior assistant accountant jobs. 

As of 2019, there were only 872 for all the 1,065 government secondary schools and 64 tertiary institutions, according to Uganda National Bursars Association general secretary Hussein Ssekandi.

Government is now hiring more bursars to fill the staffing gaps for these officials who help in processing the payments for teachers and school suppliers, working on school budgets, and advising school administrators on financial matters.

Only about 180 of the 1,377 accountants who had been shortlisted for the aptitude test for the bursar or senior assistant accountant jobs were considered to have passed the test and therefore allowed to sit oral interviews to choose the best accountants who will be posted to public schools to work as bursars.

It is likely that the pass mark was set high, largely due to the fact that there were way fewer posts and therefore the need to sieve out many of the applicants. Only 13 out of every 100 applicants (13 per cent) were considered successful and subjected to oral interviews, the next and final stage of the recruitment exercise.

This means that about 1,200 or about 87 in every 100 (87 per cent) of accountants failed the aptitude test and will now have to try elsewhere or wait until such a time when such or related jobs will be advertised by the Education Service Commission (ESC) or other government recruitment agencies.
