PSD invites Ministries to nominate suitable officers in their Ministry, Departments and Statutory Boards for appointment to the Public Service Leadership Programme (PSLP) in the first quarter of each year. If you are keen to be considered for the PSLP, you can approach your Ministry HR for more details. 4. I have just applied for the PSLP. Should I also apply for other Public Service jobs concurrently? Yes. You are encouraged to concurrently apply for other Public Service jobs when pending for your application outcome for the PSLP, as it might take some time for you to complete all the selection rounds before you are successfully appointed to the programme. 5. I have applied for the PSLP and did not pass the first selection round. Will this affect my job applications in the Public Service? No, application to the PSLP is handled separately by PSD while your application to the jobs in the Public Service are handled by the respective agencies. Hence, the outcome of your PSLP application will not affect your job application. 6. I am currently tied to a sponsorship/scholarship with an organisation. Am I still eligible to apply for the PSLP? If your scholarship is bond-free, you may still apply for the PSLP. However, if your scholarship carries a bond period, you may wish to reconsider your option to continue with your application to the PSLP as you may have to break the bond and pay liquidated damages if you were successfully appointed to the PSLP.
