Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of centralised recruitment approach in the rural district which is perceived to bring more human resources problems related to recruitment of lower cadres staffs in the rural districts. The selected area of the study was Ruangwa district and the targeted respondents were 170, however the study received a positive response from 150 respondents. The study utilized both qualitative and quantitative approach in collecting data. Thus the data were collected through questionnaires and interviews, and analyzed by using Microsoft-Excel and SPSS version 16. The results of the study revealed that centralised recruitment approach has brought many effects in the rural districts especially in recruiting lower cadres staffs of which include abscondment, turnover, failure to meet human resource demands (long time unfilled vacancy) and remove of local authority autonomy in recruitment. Thus centralized recruitment approach perpetuates and intensifies the shortage of employees in the rural districts especially staff cadres under the study. Basing on this fact the study provide a call to the government to reinstate hybrid recruitment approach to be used for recruitment of public employee’s especially lower cadre’s staff in the rural districts. This is due to the fact that hybrid recruitment approach incorporates the “best” of both decentralized and centralized recruitment approach.
