Acting Zoning administrator Therese T. Ogumoro confirmed in an interview that they are “currently doing immediate hiring” to fill in the available position currently held by Bing Taitano who has submitted her resignation letter effective March.
“It was an urgent decision that had to be made by Ms. Taitano. It was sooner than expected,” Ogumoro told Saipan Tribune.
Ogumoro said they began their hiring process early to have enough time to train Taitano’s replacement.
“We will provide on-the-job training,” said Ogumoro.
Qualified applicants must be U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or immediate relatives, a high school graduate and with two years of progressive experience in administrative work, proficient in office software, familiar with JD Edwards system, with valid CNMI driver’s license, with good communication and people skills, and able to work flexible hours.
Duties and responsibilities of an administrative assistant include receiving and screening phone calls and visitors; scheduling office appointments and meetings; providing applicants with application materials and contacts applicants to submit additional information as required; entering data from zoning permit files into the zoning database; and maintaining permit, project, financial, and personnel records.
Salary is $20,000 a year and health, life and retirement benefits are provided. Applications may be submitted hand delivered to the Zoning office at the second floor of Joeten Building in Dandan or via email to Therese.Ogumoro@zoning.gov.mp.
Deadline for submission of applications and all requirements is Thursday, Jan. 19 at 4pm.
Ogumoro is optimistic that the new staffer will be able to carry on with what Taitano was able to accomplish at the Zoning Office.
“Any dedicated and hardworking person taking over will be able to fulfill these duties and assignments satisfactorily,” added Ogumoro.
