The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has decentralized its recruitment program to expedite the filling up of thousands of vacant positions nationwide.
Revenue Commissioner Caesar R. Dulay came out with Revenue Memorandum Order No. 36-2018 to attract more professionals by allowing regional offices to also handle the hiring process.
The entry level pay for a lawyer is less than P30,000 and P21,000 for a CPA.
Records showed the agency has 21,000 available platilla positions but only 10,600 are filled.
Among others, the memorandum stated that an applicant must bring three copies of personal data sheets with passport- size pictures, plus certified true copy of diploma and transcript of records.
A lawyer applicant must also bring certificate of membership from the Philippine Bar and Professional Regulation Commission ID for CPAs.
